Sorry I haven't posted in a while. Been busy here in Arizona, following the Rockies around spring training.
Haven't seen the Rockies win yet. They lost to the A's twice and then to the Mariners. What to the losses mean? To quote Edwin Starr, "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!"
Got a chance to check out Phoenix Municipal Stadium on Saturday to see the Athletics get past the Rocks. The park was built in 1964 and it has some character. Unfortunately, Oakland will move to Mesa in two years. However, the ballpark will not meet the wrecking ball. Arizona State University will move their games to Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
Sunday I saw the A's and Rocks again but this time from Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, to me the finest spring training park I've ever seen. I've written about it in past posts. But if you've never been to Salt River Fields, you need to plan to do so. Just an absolutely gorgeous facility.
Yesterday, I was at the Rockies-Mariners game in Peoria. Peoria Sports Complex is a really nice ballpark with perhaps the friendliest ushers on the planet. I was there last year for a night game but I preferred yesterday's afternoon game in the sunshine and temps in the low 80's.
Today, another game at Salt River Fields, the Cubs versus the Rockies. Then tomorrow, I'll go to a night game at Salt River, the USA World Baseball Classic team versus the Rocks. Should be fun.
The Rockies are off tomorrow so I'll check out the Rangers-Dodgers in Glendale and then Friday and Saturday over to Chase Field for the World Baseball Classic.
In the meantime, I'm getting my running, throwing and hitting in for old guy's baseball. Some good batting cages here in Arizona.
Oh, it ws 4-degrees this moring in Denver. 60-degrees when I woke up this morning at 5 at the hotel.
Life is good.
