Spring Training Baseball

by metromag1

I love going to Spring Training baseball games, and I am so lucky that there are two stadiums only a few minutes from my house.  

The Washington Nationals and Houston Astros share a stadium and the St Louis Cardinals and the Miami Marlins share another.  I have attended three games so far – all at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter.

The great thing about spring training is that you can sit a few feet from the field for 30 dollars a seat and see all the top players.  Because the major leaguers usually leave by the sixth inning, it is the one event that I typically leave before the final out.  Just some initial observations:  The St Louis Cardinals look awesome.

They now have two MVP candidates in the middle of their lineup in Goldschmidt and Arenado.  The Washington Nationals are interesting – they have added a number of veteran players to a team that one the pre-pandem-ic World Series.  The Astros received very little booing with re-spect to the cheating scandal of three years ago – Actually only a few players remain from Houston’s World Champion team (that was accused of banging on trash cans to tip pitches).
