Wishes for a Merry Christmas to the fans across the country, and all over the world. From Alaska to Tampa to Toronto to California, and everywhere in between. May your hearts be warm, your bellies be full, your fingers and toes NOT frozen (which should not be a problem if you are in California or Florida), and you are feeling the spirit of the season.

If not, let the countdown for Spring Training and Opening Day begin!  Spring Training tickets go on sale on an undisclosed date next month, and plans for your trips to Arizona can be finalized.  Are you excited?
