Fans, it’s that time of year again. It’s that time to put on your favorite baseball hats, jerseys and start piling up the hot dogs and beer because baseball season is officially back.
It’s been a long offseason with major trades occurring beginning with pitchers David Price and Zach Greinke who made historical deals with the Boston Red Sox and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Other trades have occurred and major announcements have commenced. Among them, David Ortiz, known as “Big Papi” from the Boston Red Sox, has decided to retire after this season.
With talent off the charts this season, there are many reasons to hit the ballpark this summer. In this pool of talented players, Dodgers’ shortstop Corey Seager is one to look out for. He made his MLB debut late last season but is ready to show his skills this year. Another player that fans should look out for is Japanese pitcher Kenta Maeda, who will pitch for the Dodgers. Maeda has proved during spring training that he is going to be one of the starting pitchers that will change the Dodgers rotation. Rockies’ shortstop Trevor Story is also among the players to keep an eye out. He broke MLB records and has shown great leadership the first week of the season.
Well, there you have it fans, a couple reasons as to why you should hit the ball park this summer. Enjoy some games with friends and family, drink reasonably, and watch ball players blow your mind.
