Pitchers and catchers reported this week which means six weeks until Opening Day. I still look forward to the opening of baseball like I did when I was a kid. Renewal, new possibilities, and boundless optimism are all part of the mystique of Spring Training. This year, I intend to make it very personal. I will be very selfish, like all atheletes have to be, and focus on myself: my mental and physical health well being. And although I will still be a work in progress by the end if March when the season begins, I will have 6 weeks of commitment under my belt toward reaching my goals. Hey, baseball is a long season. 162 games. I'm in it for the long haul.
