In a sure sign of spring (and dont we need one?), many players for the Kansas City Royals and most other major-league baseball teams have reported to training camps, beginning that long journey that just might lead to a World Series title.
Once again, the Royals will be chasing the Detroit Tigers, three-time defending American League Central Division champions.
The evidence of a brutal winter is still around us in snowy yards and slushy streets, but at least the Boys in Blue are back in action. Play ball!
