The day started great, but was cloudy. Rain was forecast. We arrived at the ballpark early and were able to watch TB Rays take BP in the back field. Carl Crawford and Evan Longoria were there. Later in the ballpark I got autographs from Joe Maddon (manager), Matt Garza (pitcher), Rocco Baldelli (OF) and a few others. Unfortunately, the rain wasn't able to hold off and the tarp came out after the second inning. That will probably be the last game I get to attend at Al Lang since the Rays are moving Spring Training to Charlotte county. That's a bummer. I also got a great picture of one of my favorite players, Cliff Floyd.
I'm an avid baseball fan. This is a very messy collection of pics and stories about the games I've attended. It is completely out of order. Hopefully, over time it will take some shape. But, since it represents me, it will probably stay a mess. Veering from one topic to another, rambling, and jumping on soap boxes.
I have included stories about the Spring Training games of the past few years, other games I've attended, and finally my new hobby of collecting baseball cards.
