The sun in shining today and the snow continues to melt as the temperature is to reach the high forties today! Things are looking up here in downtown Lexington, VA, and there are a lot of activities happening this weekend and I would like to invite you to check out the local Visitor Center’s calendar to see details because we have some more important matters to discuss this week and I invite you to continue reading as our agent, Rodger Rinehart discusses this importance of this time of year. –Leslie

“People asked me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.” Rogers Hornsby

While pondering the viciousness of the recent polar vortex and ensuing snow, I realized all was not lost, that the end of winter is just around the corner. NCAA baseball is upon us. Washington & Lee has already begun the 2016 season with a 3-0 sweep of St. Marys (Md). VMI begins along with all Division I schools on February 19 in Winston – Salem, NC. Their first home game is scheduled here in Lexington at Gray-Minor Stadium where every seat offers a birds eye view of the playing field. The same can be said for W&L’s Cap’n Dick Smith Field. Catch a sunny afternoon home game sometime. These guys play good old fashioned hard ball in very competitive collegiate conferences. Spring is on the way. -Rodger

“That’s the true harbinger of spring, not crocuses or swallow returning to Capistrano, but the sound of a bat on a ball” – Bill Veeck

And a final one while we’re having fun!

“Why does everybody stand up and sing “Take Me out to the Ballgame” when they’re already there?” -Larry Anderson
