{On the Road} Spring Training 2012

Hello from sunny Arizona. l've been soaking up the rays and pre-season play at Maryvale for a few days then the Giants stadium today. Overall, the Brewers look good. Spring Training is pretty laid back so nothing amazing has happened, but it's all about the practice, the hitting, and seeing how the players work together. Winning is fun, but not essential. No one is going to risk getting injured for a pre-season game that doesn't count (except Corey Hart). But the highlight of this trip (besides the annual stop to In 'n Out) has been staying in the Encanto-Palmcroft Historic District. The charming old cottages are a welcome sight from the miles of new construction and urban sprawl. Towering palm trees line every street and every yard looks like a putting green. I have yet to figure out a way to discreetly take pictures and not freak out the neighbors. Oh, life's problems.


  1. Make sure you take some time to check out the zoo while you are there. It is the best zoo I have ever been to.

  2. Yes, they do have a great zoo; I haven't been there in quite a few years. If you're ever in Nashville, I thought their zoo was amazing.
