Spring Training here we come…2009 Cactus League
It’s official…Trevor Hoffman is a Milwaukee Brewer. I would blog about Trevor but that’s already old news. My new job assignment and shift transfer is taking a little longer to adjust to then originally planned (over a year spent on the night shift will do that to you).
I want to talk Spring Training.
Less than 40 days until pitchers and catchers report.
It’s official. Our entire family will be leaving the wintry cold behind and head for “The Grand Canyone State.”
We will be there during the last week of Spring Training.
(After the players return from the World Baseball Classic)
Last year, I shagged baseballs on the outfield berm for the Brewers during one of their practices.
Total count-26 baseballs
14 caught on the fly.
26 thrown back onto the field (they made me do it :(
That was a blast!
I’ve gotta run for now…the wife asked me to take her out to breakfast (shouldn’t it be the other way around?) Oh well, can’t win em’ all.
My next post will be a Midwesterners guide to the Cactus League. You know, a best of/worst of kinda thing. Based solely on my experiences.
If anyone’s going to Spring Training in Arizona, give me a holler.
I know my guy D over @ The Rockpile Rant is headed down in February with the mobile blogging unit, anyone else?
