At 10:00 this morning, in Goodyear, Arizona, the team shop at Goodyear Ballpark opened, full of new 2012 merchandise for the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians. Living in Goodyear and being an Indians fan, this was a big deal to me. I could not wait to go there and check out the new items. Spring Training is just around the corner, and before we know it, players will be starting their workouts and the pre-season will begin. Just the team shop opening gets me excited and in the mood for baseball. The new shirts, the hats, the mugs, the Ziz figurines, everything, are just another sign that baseball is almost here.
