Are You Ready for Some Baseball?!

Spring training is almost here.

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!
