(Sandy Bressner –
Batavia baseball player Colby Green hits a ball for waiting fielders during practice at the school Monday afternoon.

To say I’m ready for spring would be an understatement. Since high school spring sports have begun, that means it’s eventually going to be spring, right?


So far this week, I photographed a chilly baseball practice at Batavia High School – with player Colby Green lobbing balls to fielders as pictured – and a very frigid varsity girls soccer match between St. Charles North and Neuqua Valley on Tuesday evening. 

I can’t wait until I can be outside for more than a half hour without donning snow pants and gripping my hand warmers stuffed into my gloves.
