Play Harder with Vigor: Baseball
We’re well into the warm, welcoming weather of Spring, which means it’s time to get outside and start playing harder.
For baseball fans in Canada, that means that the Toronto Blue Jays (The Boys of Summer) are back on the field and ready to kick-off another promising MLB season. The Jays have found their way back onto the radar of a lot of Toronto sports fans with hot starts from newcomers Devon Travis, Josh Donaldson, and Roberto Osuna.
For others, who are maybe not on the same skill level as the Blue Jays, but still enjoy playing the game of baseball, springtime means leagues are going to be opening up and accepting new athletes. Baseball is great sport for all skill levels and there are plenty of leagues around to participate in.
