We tried to go to a game at Cubs Park on Saturday, but it was cancelled due to inclement weather. That ended my very, very, very long streak of consecutive games without a weather delay, so a bit bummed! We were lucky enough to still go into the ballpark, so as I walked around, I shot some video of the park and put it together as a virtual tour:
Greetings from sunny and warm Arizona! So happy I am missing out on the terrible Columbus weather right now! The station I work for is an Indians radio affiliate so I took advantage of that connection to meet up with the Senior Director of Communications, Curtis Danburg for a quick tour of the Indians training facility in Goodyear. If you’re like me and think it’s going to be just the one ballpark, well, you’re wrong! While they share Goodyear Ballpark with the Cincinnati Reds, they actually have a massive training facility just down the street- to themselves. I didn’t put much thought into all this, but it made a lot of sense since there are several hundred guys reporting (all the team affiliates). Curtis showed me around the facility and I got to watch a ton of batting practice, which in all honesty might be my favorite thing about baseball. He put it perfectly, saying, “there’s just something relaxing about it.” Continue reading
This past week has been A-MA-ZING. Baseball is actually happening… my Twitter timeline is flooded with Spring Training excitement! My sister and I finalized our trip plans for Spring Training- we’ll be in Phoenix February 27th- March 2nd and Tampa March 3rd-6th. Columbus feel free to snow your heart out that week!
We haven’t been to Spring Training in years, so we are both pumped to see games in both leagues. Our big stops are Goodyear Ballpark to catch the Indians vs. Mariners and then a couple of games at Steinbrenner Field to see the Yankees. I will have reviews of those ballparks and any other ones we decided to check out.
Well Super Bowl 48 was a total bust in my eyes, but at least I was able to to appreciate a couple baseball jokes during that Seattle blowout. Like the slew of ”Manny being Manny” tweets (I’m guilty) following Denver C Manny Ramirez’s botched snap and this gem from MLB Memes:

Nice to see he got the championship out early and can now coast out the rest of that contract… haha! But my absolute favorite part of the Super Bowl? All the baseball tweet’s at the end- baseball is coming, I repeat, BASEBALL IS COMING!!! Continue reading
I show you how to be a ballpark hottie for $15 or less! ;)
The weather outside might be frightful, but getting ready for baseball season is delightful… especially with this halter! The design for this t-shirt is #88 Zoe from the book, 99 Ways to Cut, Sew, Trim, and Tie Your T-Shirt into Something Special.
Follow the steps below for a unique spin on the everyday MLB shirt:
1. I ordered this shirt off of MLB.com in the clearance section for $10.78 in a small. My pictures from cutting up the shirt were lost when my hard drive crashed, so I made do with generic shirts until the finished product. Sorry!
Even though it’s the start of a new year, full of fresh expectations, January always has me a little down. College football is over and my team, Ohio State did not end on a high note. I’m not a big NFL fan and I can’t stand basketball, so there’s not a ton of sports activity for me to partake in. At least the Jackets are on a six game win streak, so there’s a little excitement in my city! But as I (im)patiently wait for my absolute favorite sport to start up again, I’ve picked up a fun and relatively new hobby to pass my time- whiskey. Continue reading
