Apparently, The Farmers Almanac is a lot better at projecting the severity of New England winters than the local gang of "meteorologists". As yet another Winter storm bores down on Boston, the locals can take solace in the fact that Truck Day is just 17 days into the future. Pitchers and catchers report on February 15th, with the first workouts on February 17th. The Northeastern Huskies and Boston College Eagles face off against The Carmine Hose on February 27th. The next day, February 28th, Boston hosts the first Spring Training game against (who else?) the Twinkies. Opening Day is March 31st—with the Fenway opener four days later on April 4th. Hang in there.
