All in all, I had a great time at my first Spring Training practice event. I would have enjoyed the access that many fans had on prior days, but I cannot complain as I know I am taking home a sack full of memories from this day.
When so much of baseball’s talk is focused on the guys that are messing up the game, it is a wonderful feeling to know that there are just as many, if not more, guys out there that are willing to do the little things to bring the fans back to baseball.
If I had to re-live this experience again the only thing I would change would be the day of the week that I attended and next time I would put on a little sunscreen before leaving the house.
Now I am just waiting for one more thing – Please, somebody please yell – “PLAY BALL”
