This has been a bad winter in Wisconsin — depending on where you are, it’s snowing/sleeting/freezing raining/slushing from the sky again today — but spring starts this afternoon.

Guys wearing Brewers uniforms will be playing baseball today, and they’ll be facing guys wearing Cubs uniforms. This is not one of the games being broadcast on TV, but you can find it on your Brewers Radio affiliate starting at 2:05 p.m.

Chase Anderson will take the ball in the first inning for the Brewers. As for who else will get their first taste of action today, here’s who Adam McCalvy says we can expect to get some work in:
