Life begins again.
Truck Day for the Red Sox is Feb. 6.
Sox Pitchers & Catchers report to Spring Training Feb. 14.
Sox first full-squad workout is Feb. 17.
(Sox are reporting a week earlier than last year, tho many, if not most, of the players go early to ‘Fenway South’ – JetBlue Park – anyway.)
Sox first Spring Training game is Feb. 23 against Northeastern. and their first Grapefruit League is against the Mets Feb. 24.
And I’ll see the Sox vs the Nats at The Ball Park of The Palm Beaches (the Nats new Spring Training facility) on Mar. 7, and then three games at Jet Blue Park (USA team, O’s, and the Rays) on Mar. 9, 10, & 11.
Opening Day for MLB is April 2 with the Yanks vs Rays and the Cubs vs the Cards. The Sox open at home against the Pirates on April 3, and the Nats also open at home April 3 vs Marlins.
Life takes a turn for the better.
MillersTime 2017 Baseball Contests:
Meanwhile, I’m starting to work on the annual MillersTime Baseball Contest questions for 2017, and I have a few questions I hope you’ll answer:
- Usually I have six contests with maybe an Extra Credit one. Is that too many?
- I’ve moved from a Sox vs Yunkee focus to questions about your favorite team and ones that require more knowledge of all of MLB. While I try to have a mixture of simple and more complicated contests, what kind of questions in general do you prefer?
- I’m open to specific suggestions on new questions. If you have an idea for one for 2017, please send it to me in the next couple of weeks.
I hope to have The Contest questions posted on this website by Mar. 1 with your predictions due by Opening Day, April 2 at 1:10 PM.
Feel free to have your baseball friends join in. If anyone you bring in wins (they need to mention your name), you too will win a prize.
And all winners will get the exclusive and highly coveted MillersTime Winner baseball t-shirt in addition to individual prizes for each contest.
