I’ve had the opportunity to go to Spring Training almost every year for the last 10 years, so I’d love to share some suggestions to those who want to attend in 2016. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
Most of my experiences have happened in Kissimmee, Florida, which is the home of the Houston Astros Spring Training. I will try to keep my suggestions on a broad basis to help fans who want to visit many different Spring Training locations. I have never been to Arizona for Spring Training, but I hope to go in the next 2 years.
Keep in mind if you are traveling to Arizona, these suggestions could vary a little bit based on your location. Please see suggestions below:
Mere weeks remain until players for the Boston Red Sox report to spring training in Florida as the kick off to the 2016 season.
A flurry of high-profile offseason moves have the team presumably sitting in a much better space than last year, when they finished in the basement of the American League East.
However, they are far from a finished product and still have some uncertainty facing them as they prepare for another season on the diamond.
Here are three of the most looming questions:
Following the 2001 baseball season the San Francisco Giants faced a challenging problem: how to retool a 25 man roster that had a solid core of talented players but still lacked a number of critical pieces.
That Giants team also had a recent history of success, making the post season twice in the previous five years. In 1997 the Giants lost the League Division Series 3-0 to the Florida Marlins, and in 2000 they again lost the LDS, this time 3-1 to the New York Mets.
That’s when General Manager Brian Sabean did something the San Francisco Giants rarely ever do: he acknowledged the team’s needs and signed several free agents (along with making several trades), going all in with the goal of playing in the 2002 World Series.
