It has felt like a very long winter indeed, and a long time since we’ve been able to count on a regular baseball season. But as of now, it appears that MLB is ready to launch a full 162-game season this week, and one with fans in the stands.

It’s a place many of us dreamed we’d see again, but a lot of uncertainty stood in the way, getting us to this point. Now we’re poised to see baseball, to hear fans, and to hopefully have as close to a “normal” season as possible.

Until then, let’s visit the news of the weekend and prepare ourselves for what’s to come.
