-Alexander Pope, An Essay on Man
These words I've always heard quoted about the next upcoming baseball season. Well, at least until Kevin Millar got the Sox players to 'cowboy up' in 2004 and rode that theme all the way to hoisting the World Series Championship trophy. The Red Sox pitchers and catchers reported this past Friday to Fort Myers, Florida to begin another season, while this sculpture, of a family on a July afternoon waiting outside of our Hadlock Field, stands amid another four inches or so of newly fallen snow. Will it ever end? Not winter. I know it will, but what about the snow?
Someday soon, I might just get to see a spring training game.
"Hope springs..." in Florida.
