4 Days, 3 Ballparks, 2 Twins, 1 Experience

The twins' A's gear for the trip...


Although it looks like we missed BBG and others in the AN crew by a week, wifethereof and I have arrived in sunny Phoenix with the now nine months old Matthew and Sarah. We'll be at the Cleveland Indians game today, followed by games at the Mariners, and then home at Papago for games against the Sox and Cubs to close out our four day, four game swing.


Going to Spring Training is the one annual vacation my wife and I have made a tradition in our home, and while Matthew and Sarah might not remember it, they've already attended. But last year, they were only able to hear the games, being upside down and in the dark...

The twins' arrival pretty much put a stop to our season ticket tradition. Last year, the third year we had partial tickets, we only attended one ballgame with the kids after June, even if we watched along from home or on the radio for the rest. And we've even told Matthew and Sarah that the only TV they are allowed to watch until they are two is A's baseball and the MLB network. We're going to raise these kids right.

So... we're down here in Arizona, the four of us. We're going to be eating and breathing baseball for four days, and hope to see any of you there should we run into each other. It should be pretty clear which group we are. We're the tired-looking parents each dragging around A's clad 9 month olds.

Go A's!
