Re: Spring Training - Places to see/eat/drink
Just spent my first day in Goodyear. A diehard baseball fan's dream. The Reds training complex is amazing. Went to the complex around 10 am and got to watch all the big names take BP. Joey, Brandon, Jay, Choo, Todd, everyone. I even got a rare Votto-hit foul ball that I'm going to try and get autographed tomorrow. Watched a lot of them doing some running drills and training.
Was incredibly impressed with Homer's build. Looks like he's put on even more muscle over the offseason and is in great shape.
The game was really fun to watch in itself. Choo was really impressive hitting and looked really natural in CF. Billy Hamilton is just a freak of nature. Watching him run the bases was worth the trip in itself. Also got to shake hands and thank Bob Castellini for all he's done for the organization. He was sitting a few rows in front of me.
Overall could not have had a better experience, and still have two days left before I have to fly back to cold Ohio.
This is the year.
