Dear Excited and Impatient Red Sox Fans,
They say that good things come to those who wait (just take it from the Chicago Cubs)! But sometimes that waiting is hard, especially when the baseball vacancy in our lives is filled with a cold, snowy winter.
I’m here to ask you to pull through! In just a few short weeks we will be waking up to morning reports from sunny Fort Meyers Spring Training. In fact, the Red Sox start their Spring Training workouts on Valentine’s Day (that may be too much love for one day for us Sox fans)!
Truck Day is in 26 days! That’s right! On February 6th Wally and the gang will pack up Fenway for its migration south. We only need to make it through 26 short winter days before we can celebrate the sights and sounds of Spring!
And hey, tweets and Instagram posts from our favorite players can help aid the wounds of Spring fever. Many players have already moved past the holidays and are gearing up for this season.
And although HotStove updates and trades keep us on the edge of our seats, secured contracts can keep us from worrying. The offseason is a special time of year when new teams are constructed and teammate friendships are formed.
So, you excited and impatient baseball fans, I am here to ask you to please persevere and hold out hope. The 2017 baseball season will be here before you know it. I urge you to use this month to polish your bobble heads and buff up your foam fingers because come February 14th, baseball is in full swing!
Stay strong Fenway Faithful!
The Sox Sweetheart
