You never count the last day.. that’s just a wake up. 100 Days and a Wake Up for Ironpig’s opening day in 2011!
I can already smell the grills being fired up. Winter grasping for its last breath and sunny skies trying to remind us that spring is around the corner.
The first day of baseball at Coca Cola Park has the same feel each year. The new interns rushing around madly to make sure everything is in its place. The concessions workers standing, waiting proudly for the surge of hungry fans. The scoreboard revealing new “themes” for the new season. The scoreboard time and temperature will serve as a reminder that it still is April. Smiles will be everywhere.
As for the team, we won’t know for a while. The roster is usually announced a week or so before opening day. Until then we have a few milestones to look forward to.
Pitchers and catchers report to spring training starting around February 11th. That’s only 46 days away!
We’ll still see some straggling transactions. By this time most of the key players have signed. Teams will look to just fill out their rosters. Still no word if Mike Cervenak has been signed anywhere.
The Ironpig’s winter banquet (formerly the Phillies caravan) is on January 27th. Just a short month away.
You still have time to submit a recipe to the Noise Nation cookbook!
We have a long winter to think of things like making our own homemade version of Monopoly…
Let’s see what else comes up until then.
100 Days and a wake up!
