Major League pitchers and catchers have officially reported for all 30 clubs at Spring Training with the first full squad workouts set for tomorrow and college baseball is officially underway for the 2021 season. It’s that time of year again baby!!
I now have access to ESPN+ so I’m finally able to watch more games from around the league as I haven’t been able to watch many in the last two years due to my work schedule but I’ll be back on it here soon. As I write this, I’m watching the Arizona State versus Sacramento State baseball game as it’s just kicked off and there are more baseball games set for the rest of the day and the throughout the week all around college baseball.
I primarily follow the Chicago Cubs and Boston Red Sox in MLB and the ASU Sun Devils and ISU Redbirds in NCAA baseball. While I’ll watch games from all around both leagues, I’m actually a fan of these teams where I just watch with no skin in the game for others.
I cannot wait until I’m able to once again sit in the seats at Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs. Hopefully COVID restrictions will be lifting in Chicago when summer comes around because I miss going to the stadium, the atmosphere of the games, and having fun with friends while enjoying the game and team I’ve loved since I was a kid.
Usually, each year I try to go down to Arizona for Spring Training to watch the games, get some cool gear, and get a look at the prospects for the teams but this year it’s pretty unlikely. I have to look up to see if Arizona is allowing fans. I’m sure Florida is because they haven’t done any real lockdowns so maybe I’ll check out trips there but I’m not too sure if Arizona has done anything. I’d love to go see some Spring Training games so I’d be happy to fly to Arizona to see the Cubs or Florida to watch the Red Sox. I’ll have to look into that.
Are you excited to for baseball season to start up again? I can’t wait to be seated in a stadium and hear the crack of the bat.
