Hope Springs Eternal Today.

...and not just because it's Valentine's Day. More importantly than that -- pitchers and catchers report today! Spring training officially starts, which means that baseball is back baby!

So, to commemorate the day when everything still seems possible and we diehards look ahead to a rosy season (and not more Congressional hearings), I offer you this.

In 1999, Major League Baseball offered the (now mercifully forgotten)"Turn Ahead the Clock" promotion, in which several teams futuristic uniforms from the far distant year of 2029. Consider it a cautionary tale of how looking ahead can go horribly wrong.
