Spring Training 2013

Back in March i flew to Arizona to watch spring training baseball.  This was my 4th year going with Adam and John.  We also meet with John's uncle and friends.

Here's the links to the other times i went down there:
I didn't take a lot of pictures this year.  Mostly just a bunch of panorama pictures of the different stadiums we went to.

This was the stadium in Surprise Arizona.  We never made it to our seats at this game.  We just hung out in right field under the umbrella.

Last year when Karrie and I were at this stadium it was cold and windy.  This year the entire trip was perfect weather, 80's and sunny every day.

 This field was really nice, but mostly old people at the game.

The next stadium we wen to was in Peoria.  I thought that this was the best field for watching a baseball game.  It was smaller in terms of capacity but the seats seemed a lot closer to the field.

Here's the view of the field from the dugout.

We had really great seats, perfect angle from the field.  We were just to the left of home plate, 20 rows up.  Last year the old, white-bearded Jason Giambi hit a homerun that cleared the right field wal by about 2 inches.  This year he hit another homerun to right center about 400 feet.

Then we went back to the new Scottsdale stadium.  We watched two game here, one during the day and one at night.

This is by far the most popular.  They just recently built it and it's super nice.

There were loads of fans at both the day and night games.

It looks just like a major league ball park except it only hold around 12,000 people.  Actually at the night game i think they put something up on the score board that said we set an attendance record for that stadium.

Here's what it looks like at dusk from the bridge in right field.  Like all of the stadiums it has a grass berm outfield.  The tickets there usually go for just $10.
