The Lehigh Valley IronPigs have the newest of the minor league parks in the Phillies' organization. With any luck, the beautiful, lush green grass will be showing its blades sometime soon and all of this white stuff will be just a memory.
In Reading, Baseball Town is looking more like a winter wonderland. Snow covers not only the field, but the seats, the picnic area and well, everything. Rest assured though that things will heat up before the R-Phils home opener on April 8.
As far as weather is concerned, the Williamsport CrossCutters have an advantage; their home opener isn't until June 18. Right now though, historic Bowman Field is facing the same fate as fields all across the colder areas of the country, but it will bloom into its usual beautiful self before too long.
Oh, and if snow isn't your thing, there was a "mini-hurricane" that went through Clearwater on Friday. Fortunately, no real damage and no injuries. Just Mother Nature's way of letting our friends in Florida know how lucky they are that their field isn't covered in two feet of snow.
Philly Baseball News would like to thank the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Reading Phillies and Williamsport CrossCutters for sharing photos of their snow-covered ballparks with us.
