There were times when I thought this moment would never arrive. I’ve survived the dark and dreary off season and lived to tell about it. I feel like one of the survivors of a terrible catastrophe who is not sure why he was spared but he’s still grateful to know his destiny is to face another day. After the plague has passed over the land, those who survived began to assemble in the streets to assess the damage to their lives. I can exuberantly state that everyone in my family survived. Some of them are weak and I am not sure they could have lasted much longer but with the worst behind us we will survive. Hope springs eternal and with each day the sun shines a little brighter and a little longer. Temperatures are slowly rising eliminating the memory of a cold winter. With the arrival of pitchers and catchers to Tucson Electric Park, all seems right with the world.
