Bob, it's usually the week before pitchers and catchers report. A lot of the regular major leaguers were already down there when we were there that year. They were all very approachable, and would give you a tip or two. I talked with Danny Graves and Aaron Boone. My little boy actually ended up playing with Danny's young son for the bigger part of an afternoon. They had a ball. They didn't "big time" us at all. I remember seeing a Jim Bowden's black Porshe sitting in the parking lot every day, with the tags "BODES" on the back. Never actually saw the "wonderboy".
