Groundskeepers all over baseball are scrambling to help their ballparks recover from months of snow and freezing temperatures.

The Chicago White Sox are trying to deal with a deep frost, and the Detroit Tigers are re-sodding their entire field. Both those teams are scheduled to play at home on March 31, when the regular season begins in earnest with 13 games.
