Spring Training Tour - Day 3

Yesterday's game took us to the newly renovated Ed Smith Stadium, in Sarasota, to see the Baltimore Orioles play the Detroit Tigers in front of a sellout crowd.  The new stadium is beautiful!  Some of the play on the field early in the game...not so much.  There's a reason why it's spring training.  There was this error in short right field.
And, this blunder in foul territory near the Orioles' dugout.
But, the atmosphere at the ballpark (not to mention the weather) was absolutely wonderful.  The Orioles' mascot was really cute working the crowd, giving high fives to fans and stopping for photo opps.  Although the Orioles lost 9-1, it was a great time and I'm looking forward to hitting the park again.  And, that concludes the 2011 whirlwind spring training tour!

SRQ, you are quite the sports action photographer! Play ball! Good luck in March Madness. I hope the Jayhawks come in third.
