Baseball, soccer, softball, lacrosse sign-ups are foretaste of spring


January 28, 1994|By PEG ADAMARCZYK

Patches of ice and a soggy heap of boots and mismatched gloves -- such are the legacies of the last two weeks' winter storms. The season is only one-third over, but I can't help wishing for warmer weather.

There is a bright ray of hope on the horizon, though -- baseball, softball, soccer and lacrosse sign-ups are on the schedule all over the Pasadena area. Can spring be far behind?
