    Have you? Would you? Fantasy camp

    I thought recalled reading a post from someone here who had gone to Reds fantasy camp. Has anyone ever gone? Would you go?

    I went for my 40th birthday, 5 years ago. It was the best time I have ever had and I would go again if I had the money. Playing baseball all day and hanging with ex-Reds, many of them from the Big Red Machine was really fun.

    I think I'd really like it.

    There's a 40th birthday theme that I seem to have missed out on!

    What did they do for umpires there?? Did they pay locals to do the games??

    Since I really haven't played baseball in 22 years but would love to part of any Reds pasts event, I always wondered if they would let me come down and let me umpire the games if even for free.

    Locals, I believe, George. You should inquire about that.

    They were minor league and college umps. Its about a week before spring training so they use it to tune up. They were really nice guys.

    Sorry, I can't resist...

    "Kramer goes to a fantasy camp. His whole life is a fantasy camp. People should plunk down two-thousand dollars to live like him for a week. Do nothing, fall ass-backwards into money, mooch food off your neighbors and have sex without dating; that's a fantasy camp."

    I'm still in my late 20's, but I'd still love to go. I don't know that I'd drop down much money to do so, though.

    When my son saw the physical specimen that is: Corky Miller come to the plate the other night--he commented that he looked like they had called him up from Reds Fantasy Camp.

    There are some "Corky's" but there are also some guys that come to kick everyone's tail.

    Same here. I would love to but I could never afford. I was watching a Reds pre game and they did a story about these guys that go to this. One of them had done a 2nd mortgage on his house to afford. I think that is going to extreme and I would never put myself in that kind of debt for something like this.

    Yeah, I would never go that far.

    A slight twist on the original question, would you plan and save to go to fantasy camp?
