“People ask me what I do in the winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”—Rogers Hornsby
You can buy it on Amazon here. No, no print version: it’s strictly an eBook. It’s currently the top baseball-history book on Amazon.com and the #10 overall baseball book (both print and eBooks).
This book covers the best of spring training in Florida, with extensive guides to all the major-league camps, completed with schedules, workout times, concessions highlights, seat recommendations and more. Also included: where to stay near the camps (including RV camps), what to do when not at training camp, and other areas of interest to both hardcore fans and casual attendees.
This book is both for the hardcore baseball fan – who goes to spring training to scout out their favorite team in depth – as well as the more casual fan who heads to spring training more in search of the perfect suntan than in search of this year’s spring phenom. While the hardcores just want to know the shortest route between their hotel and the ballpark, the casual fan knows that the richness of spring training is augmented with visits to local restaurants, shopping areas, and area attractions.
This book is arranged by area: the Gulf Coast (where the Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, and Tampa Bay Rays train), greater Tampa Bay (where the Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and Toronto Blue Jays train), Orlando (where the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros train), and the Treasure Coast (where the Miami Marlins, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Washington Nationals train).
