ROD CAREW IS AN INSPIRATION ON AND OFF THE BALLFIELD

The opening of another baseball season is always a magnificent time of hope and renewal. Anything is possible regardless where your favorite team finished the previous season in early October. After all, until that first game is in the record books, all teams are World Series hopefuls and tied for first at 0-0.
