    Storm Clouds are Gathering

    Every year my oldest daughter does an illustration to commemorate the day Pitchers & Catchers report. We've been getting some teasers from her Illustration site's FB page, but this year's is finally up on her blog.

    Enjoy.

    Re: Storm Clouds are Gathering

    I loved this paragraph.

    That's spring training for me. The storm clouds are gathering. The pace of baseball is uneven. I know that. It's sometimes all about waiting. There's lots of getting ready, of settling into stances, of positioning yourself in the field, of winding up to throw. But if you know the game, you know the value of those slow times. You know who to watch, and what to expect, and what to wait for. And then... something happens.

    BTW, there are links at the bottom of the post for the previous five years she's done.

    This is my new desktop background. Everyone at work will know "The Storm Clouds Are Gathering".
    What if this is as good as it gets?

    While working on Joey's drawing, she commented that he has features similar to Choo.

    We were just talking to our daughter and she mentioned that she did the illustration for Joel Luckhaupt's upcoming e-book, his 2013 Pre-Season Annual. It's also a very cool illustration:
