First Day in Ft. Myers
The first wave of warm air is truly amazing. Last night my first breath of Florida air began around 12:00 am, but it was worth the wait. I’m heading over to the Twins Minor League Complex around 12ish to watch Pawtucket and Portland play. Tonight, I will be covering the Major League game, and hopefully have a chance to catch up with some former Sea Dogs. I will be spending some time with Red Sox radio broadcaster Jon Rish.
I met some very nice people in the airport last night, all from Maine, and heading down here to watch the Red Sox. It was nice hearing these people talk so highly of the Sea Dogs’ organization. They knew everything about the team from the management staff, players, ticket prices and our capacity crowds during the summer.
I just saw the Yankees rotation: 4 of 5 starters all pitched in the Eastern League (CC, Burnett, Nova and Hughes).
