Today is the 1st of March. It is supposed to get above normal temperatures again today, which is not the usual case for sectional week. Sectionals began last night, but most area teams do not play until tonight or Friday.
It also marks the unofficial start of the outdoor sports season. Most of the spring sport teams are already practicing and are ahead of schedule due to the weather. Even spring baseball training is underway and in just a month the 2017 season will get underway. Can the Cubs repeat as World Series champs?
