Anyone heading to Spring Training? 


I'm not, but just curious. Was hoping someone could post updates, kind of share the experience with us. It's on my bucket list to head down to Florida for ST some year.

I would love to go however it will probably never happen for me due to it taking place during tax season and thus the wife can't go and there is no way she would let me go to Florida without her coming as well...
 Meyer and May will be top of the rotation starters by 2015.

I'm not going this year, but I used to head down to that area every spring break during college and catch a few games.   One of the cooler things I saw was Bert Blyleven's final appearance in a MLB uniform (the Twins signed him as a free agent in 93 and I saw him pitch twice in spring training that year - one of which was his last outing before hung them up for good).  I can also say that I saw the one and only Michael Jordan play baseball (he entered a game as a pinch-hitter, drew a walk, and caught a pop-fly for an out when he was in the field).  All in all, it was a great experience that I highly recommend.

I have a buddy who went down last year and actually meant Prince Fielder and got him to sign a Baseball after a game and took a picture with him right next to what I believe was his Bentley.

My wife and son and I will be at the Astros/Bluejays game in Kissimmee on March 17th.  As bad as the 'stros have been in recent years, they are going to really get killed in the AL

Re: Anyone heading to Spring Training? 


hear all that 'sloshing'? thats the sound of Anaheim, Texas, Seattle and oakland drooling over the prospects of playing the Astros a whole bunch of times in 2013. Houston has a legitimate shot of going 0-162! they are that bad.

...now watch them come out of nowhere (like the O's of 2012) and be competitive......
