Well folks, it's that time of year again! On Sunday, 2/19, pitchers and catchers report for spring training! I have the fever....how about you! Florida is the place to be in March........as well as the rest of the year! Rays spring workouts begin Monday, 2/20 in Port Charlotte. I can hardly wait for the "boys of summer" to be back in action. My husband and I both LOVE baseball and go into a sort of mourning period when the season is over. Thankfully, living in Florida lets us get our baseball fix a lot sooner that other parts of the country. All of the teams in the Grapefruit League have their spring training camps here. If you are a baseball fan-atic, you can catch any number of games within an hour-or-so drive and be back in Tampa before dinner! The mister and I are planning on being in Port Charlotte for the opening of the spring workouts as well as the spring training home-opener the first weekend of March. This is some good, wholesome, family entertainment at a reasonable price and the kiddos will love how accessible the players are in this more personable setting. I hope to see some of you out at the "old ball game"!
What better way to show pride for the teams that train in the area than with a coffee mug? I show my support every morning with a cup of coffee in my Rays mug.
Play ball and let's go Rays!
