Ah, baseball.

As spring training games open, the Indians and Reds are kicking off their first game, and Jordan Bastain of is at the proceedings. Prior to the game starting, Cleveland played a video tribute to the late Bob Feller, who passed away earlier this offseason. Fellers No. 19 is painted into the grass in-between the Cleveland dugout and first-base line, as the image below snapped by John Fay shows. Fay, who works for the Cincinnati Enquirer, also noted the No. 10 on the Reds' side of the field, honoring the late Sparky Anderson.

Baseball was rocked by another death Sunday, as the iconic Duke Snider passed away at age 84.
