Another great day at Spring Training. We spent the morning at the practice fields. It is nice to be able to take part in spring training as fans. We tried to check out the White Sox in Tucson on Wednesday but security would not let us in. I guess not all teams allow full access by the fans. THANK YOU RANGERS! We are lucky enough sit in the same bleachers as Nolan Ryan or JD and check out the minor league games. TOO COOL!
Caught the Saturday afternoon game in Peoria against Seattle. Rough start for Hurley. He got knocked around pretty good in the first inning, 4 runs and 6 hits. He regrouped and came back to spread 4 hits and 1 run over the next 4 innings. Not a bad recovery for the young man. CJ and Benoit are back and impressive as ever. Ian and Michael are a great 1-2 punch in the offense. I think I like the idea of them 1 and 2 in the batting order.
Note to others, do not sit in the metal bleacher in Peoria on a afternoon game. Hot, uncomfortable, and squashed in with the strangest people I have sat with in a long time. We should have sat in the grass in the outfield. When you are in Arizona and watching baseball in the afternoon, metal bleachers are a very bad idea. I think I walked out of the game cooked medium well and insane. The Rangers winning made it bearable though.
