Batter Up

It's Spring Training time in Florida. This year, I'm going to a Toronto Blue Jays game at Knology Park in Dunedin (I've never been, I like rooting for the underdog, and I hear it's a nice place to watch a game). And if I don't go to a L. A. Dodgers game in Vero Beach this year, I definitely will next year, because 2008 will be the team's last year for spring training at Dodgertown.

Here's an assortment of links:
