Grapefruit League 2013

Last weekend Tash and I were able to catch our first two Spring training games together. We saw the Orioles defeat the Phillies in Sarasota, FL, and then watched the Red Sox take on Tampa Bay down coast in Fort Myers.

If only we had brought some cash, this chapel on the water behind our hotel in Bradenton, FL, was available for the right price.

Yep, that's the name of the restaurant and, yep, we ate there. Sarasota, FL.

The Boston Red Sox Spring training venue in Ft. Myers, FL, is a miniature Fenway Park, more or less.

One of the Red Sox' biggest fans, pictured here, was guardedly optimistic concerning another World Series championship in 2013.
