So it's the last week of Spring Training here in the Valley of thee Sun. If you did not take in a game these last few weeks, you truly missed out,
Spring Training for true baseball fans is more than just practice and preparation for the upcoming season. It's a chance for fans to truly be a part of the game that America loves so much. I recently went to a game at Maryvale Baseball Stadium, here's my story.
My mother was given tickets to a game and so myself, my wife, my daughter and my mom loaded up in our truck for an afternoon of baseball in Arizona. We easily found parking and were there in time for the National Anthem. We grabbed some snacks and headed for our seats. To our amazement we had extremely good seats. The first roe above the dugout, compliments of my wonderful aunt. We were on the visitors side, which happened to be the Dodgers dugout. It was a great site to see. The batter was so close that the guy next to me had a glove and warned me to watch for line drives. The game itself was to exciting, just one home run. It was the atmosphere that made the game fun. After each inning the Dodger first baseman would run back to the dugout, someone would throw him a ball and he would toss it to a fan. During the game my wife was one of the lucky fans to get a ball. I consider myself a fan of baseball so I naturally had fun. My wife and daughter are not but they too had a blast. We had great seats, good snacks and "Lemonade Lemonade like grandma made." If you have ever been to a Dbacks game you'll understand. Nonetheless you couldn't ask for a better day,
