1975 (a look way back/old stuff from my .mac website)
Spring Training 1975. I was 7. My dad took me to see a baseball game at Al Lang Field in St. Petersburg, FL. At that time Al Lang was the Spring Training home of the NY Mets and St. Louis Cardinals. It was picture perfect day. A kid could go on the field and have his picture taken with their favorite NY Met. I was so shy I wouldn’t ask. My dad got pictures of Rusty and Yogi. Twenty-one years later my dad and I went to a Spring Training game at Progress Energy Park, home of AL Lang Field. Yogi was there.
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.
