THE. DAY. IS. HERE. Spring Training 2021 Is On!

While many players routinely show up early, the official start date circled on the Mets calendar is February 17th. That day is here, and pitchers and catchers are reporting to Clover Park for their first day on the job in 2021. 

It feels like anything but spring in most places of the country right now, but baseball is finally in the air. This last year has been a nightmare, but the guys reporting on time, and hopefully starting up a full 162 game season, is a gigantic step towards normalcy. 

While the capacity will be limited for games, the back fields training sessions closed to fans, and more, it's going to be different to say the least. We usually kick off the year 1,000 strong on The Berm, but being there at all this year would feel like a blessing. 

Even though the Mets didn't pick up some of the top dog names in the free agent pool, they team undeniably bolstered the roster. And a reminder for the hard hard headed fans in the back.... FRANCISCO LINDOR.  

A lot of new uniforms are hanging in the locker room today. The Mets say they're not done making moves, and already have 17 fresh faces in camp. 

And if you're a fan of the future, or celebrity, Pete Crow Armstrong and Tim Tebow have been invited as well.... 

It doesn't feel real, but baseball is kind of here. I don't care what necessary rules I need to follow, being back at ballparks in any capacity this year will be much appreciated.

Any baseball is better than no baseball, and win or lose I'll never take another game for granted.
