I attended my first Spring Training game down in Kissimmee, FL this past weekend. Despite the downpour and about 45 minutes spent getting lost and trying to find our way back to our motel on Friday, it was a great day for a game on Saturday. We got to the complex around 7:15 am to see if we could score some autographs and saw Jason Heyward and Jordan Schafer, among other minor leaguers, pass by, but weren't able to get anyone to sign. We stopped by the EPSN Clubhouse Store and got a t-shirt. There were already a lot of people there for other miscellaneous events. We left shortly after to get breakfast and hit some of the places nearby. Around 11:15 am, we arrived back at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to a mass of people and an assortment of age groups of cheerleaders.
We weren't able to stay for the entirety of the game because of the 5+-hour drive to South Georgia we had ahead of us to get home, but we stayed until around the 5th or 6th inning when some of the regulars started to come out. Our seats in section 107, row D were great and it was a great trip overall.
My camera isn't the best one out there, but here are a few of the pictures I snagged while at the game. Photo Gallery (Click link to see the rest).
