Today is the day! Pitchers and catchers are officially reporting to Spring Training! Oh, sure most of them are already there. Heck, they might all be there already for all I know. But, that doesn’t really matter. It’s not the activity of the day as much as it is the counting of the day. We’re one day closer to the start of baseball! One day closer to being able to sit in the sun out in Section 36 watching a great ballgame.
So, while Spring Training doesn’t mean the same as it used to, it still means a lot. Back in the day, it was the day players started getting ready to play again. They’d start their workouts, and get ready for Opening Day. Of course, these days most of the players have been working out since the season ended. They probably even have significant workout routines approved by the team. But, this is the day it all gets official. The whole team will start preparing to win another championship.
Which is what we’re doing here at the blog. I’m getting posts ready. I’m coming up with ideas for future posts. I’m trying to come up with regular features, or new topics, or other things to make Section 36 the best it can be in order to be ready for the season. Hopefully you’ll think it is all worth it and enjoy the season right along with me. Hopefully I’ll use the Spring Training time wisely.
And, you should too. Spring Training is the perfect time to make sure that you’re prepared to enjoy Section 36 the entire season without missing a thing. You wouldn’t want to feel left out when everyone else is talking about something, would you?
What can you do?
Do you “like” the Section 36 facebook page yet? If not, go do that. Along with links to all the great articles here on the blog, I post at least one picture a day there. Pictures from Section 36, or with, or in, or from Section 36. All wonderful. Many of them submitted by readers just like you. Many of these are pictures you can’t see anywhere else. You wouldn’t want to miss any of those, would you? Is there anything better than looking at great pictures of the best section in Fenway?
The same goes for Instagram. I post pictures there all the time. Not as often as the facebook page, but they’re almost always pictures unique to Instagram. So you’ll want to make sure you’re getting both. I wouldn’t want you to miss out on any of the fun as we get to the start of the season.
Or Twitter? Do you follow Section 36 on Twitter yet? More people are following all the time because they want to know everything the blog has to offer. It’s not just another way to make sure you’re alerted to new post here on the blog. The witty comments are well worth the follow. Over 1000 people already think so. Shouldn’t you? Before the season starts? Don’t miss out.
I’m guessing you don’t want any of your friends to miss out on any of this stuff either. Tell them. Remind them. Good friends don’t let their friends be unprepared.
This way we can all enjoy the season together. This looks to be a fun year for the Red Sox, so I’m looking forward to a fun year here on the blog. I can’t wait to share all of the experiences with all of you in so many different ways.
Are you ready for the season to start?
