Pitchers and Catchers Have Reported

… makes you want to do a little dance doesn’t it?

or maybe just enjoy a bowl of chowder?

Parties of whole-souled fellows are going to express their gratitude to Heaven for its manifold blessings, to-morrow, by playing ball and eating chowder. They could not have selected a more appropriate and sensible method of doing it, as a man is never on so good terms with his God and fellow men, as when he is enjoying himself in healthy and rational manner.

-Michael Walsh, founder of the Magnolia Ball Club, 1843
