Presidential Name Game

Winter weather is in full effect throughout the area (nothing new) temperatures dropped below zero over the weekend. The extreme cold hit record lows this weekend marking one the coldest months in Upstate New York.  The snow and cold continued but Tuesday a new element arrived, freezing rain. The freezing rain crippled my car  killing the battery leaving me stuck working from home attempting to jump my car as snow continued to fall. That is my weekly weather rant.

This week is an exciting week as Saturday the Nationals pitchers and catchers will report to Spring Training marking the start of baseball! In the next couple of weeks our blog will continue to grow as the new voice of the Doubledays (can’t spoil the announcement so keep checking for that) will cover the baseball action each week!

This past Monday was President’s Day, so we decided to do some research on all the former Auburn players with Presidential last names to hold over your craving of baseball until Saturday.
