We've officially hit a dry spell here at The Rainout Blog since football season came to an end. Good news, however, is on the way. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training in just a few days and soon there will be potential rainouts during those March exhibition games. And in April, when the first pitch is fired to open the regular season (Actually the season opens March 31 this year), there will be great potential for scenes like this. Last April was hectic with rain and snow hitting Major League ballparks at a maddening pace. I made more posts in April 2007 than any other month during the brief history of this blog.
By the way, the headline to this post – "Raindrops and Curveballs" – was the original name of this blog, which initially was intended to chronicle baseball rainouts and delays. And you think the current format is narrowly focused.
