25 #BaseballAndSpringsteen Tweets That Show It's Hard To Be Fan In The Offseason


Baseball fans cannot subsist on reports of qualifying offers alone.

With the 2013 World Series already in the books and pitchers and catchers not reporting to 2014 Spring Training until February, baseball fans and media filled a few early hours of the Hot Stove season by writing #springsteenandbaseball tweets.

Inspired by a post at Beyond The Box Score by Lewie Pollis examining the decline in MLB offense with a little help from The Boss, the hashtag combining Springsteen song titles with baseball names and terms was embraced by those waitin' on a sunny Spring Training day.
