Very little to speak of as far as Biscuits, unless you want to include the mascot (what the hell did they do to Big Mo? So weird!). While we play the waiting game for one more week, there is one aspect of baseball that has a lot going on right now.
In fact, you could say March in Montgomery is....

|Bill Dickey, Babe Ruth and Lefty Gomez seen 1926 in Mobile the day before Montgomery's game|
Fans turn out to see the fabled Yankee lineup, including Bill Dickey, Lou Gehrig and of course, the Babe. Of course the media covered the event heavily, hopefully the newsprint is legible...
MARCH 28 1941
The Yankees beat Montgomery in a 17-1 drubbing. Even pitcher Red Ruffing gets into the act, hitting a home run and picking up the victory in the spring exhibition contest.
