The Boys of Spring

This is my kind of March Madness!  Every year, a friend comes down from Detroit and we hit several spring training games.  Unfortunately, due to Mother Nature's fickleness, snow caused him to miss his flight --- and this Yankee-Braves game yesterday at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.  In this shot, Yankees outfielder Andruw Jones is sliding safely into home plate.  My friend then arrived safely in SRQ.  The spring training tour continues today with a Pirates game in nearby Bradenton.  Play ball!

That's my kind of spring training. Have you been to our new Ed Smith Stadium? Isn't it beautiful? I'm sure you have all the pictures of the renovation.

Wow, this makes us look forward to warmer weather. Baseball, hotdogs, and a warm summer breeze.

A sporting education for us Brits. At least at the end of a day's baseball you know who won, which you can't always say about cricket. Nicely caught.

Baseball is my favorite sport to watch. Glad to see it coming around this spring!

With the NFL shooting itself in the foot, MLB is positioned to reclaim its position as the national pasttime.
