Excitement in the air
Snow still on the ground
Trucks are ready to roll
Off to the warm south
Soon the players arrive
Grizzled veterans
Young hopeful rookies
Most kept in shape
Next the snowbirds
Anticipating ballgames
In the warm sun
Seeing familiar names
And the unknowns heading
To the minor leagues
Another season about to
Begin as the teams head
To their home grounds
Play ball!
