From Winter Solstice to Baseball Solstice. Today marks the halfway point between the end of the World Series (October 31) and the first day pitchers and catchers may report for the new season (February 13). Yes after today, we are closer to the next great adventure than to the last. Welcome Yule, soon come baseball!
To mark the occasion today, for the first time since July of 2012, I pitched off of a mound. One extensive shoulder surgery and a helluva lot of rehab work later, I'm that much closer to being fully game ready by April.
