Baseball season is almost upon us, with spring training games starting in only 3 days! Soon the weather will start warming up, the grass will be nice and green, and the crack of the bat will be heard all over this country. My alma mater, Long Beach State, had their first game of the NCAA season today against USC. Unfortunately the Dirtbags lost 4-0 to the Trojans in front of a record-breaking crowd; selling out Blair Field, weeks ago. We will be dusting off our passports and heading up to the "Great White North" in two weeks, to watch a week of the World Baseball Classic in Toronto. Should be very cold, but we will definitely have a great time...I can't wait! Last, one of my childhood heroes, Ken Griffey Jr., is heading back to Seattle. Junior signed a one-year deal with the M's. Life is definitely all good again!
