They dye the river green in Chicago for St. Patrick's Day. They might as well paint the bases green in Fort Myers, Fla., for a Boston Red Sox-St. Louis Cardinals game in the Grapefruit League on Monday.
What might be a new touch are the white shamrocks stenciled on top of each base. Perhaps they did that in past seasons. Is it over the top? It is, but that's what happens on St. Patrick's Day, when we beat all of our snakes to a pulp to satisfy the baseball gods! Or perhaps not.
In addition to the bases, the Cards are wearing green caps, and the Red Sox are wearing green jerseys with shamrocks and caps.
