Report from the Fort Day 1 (Afternoon Edition)
Today I traveled down to Sarasota, Florida to watch the Sea Dogs take on the Bowie Baysox. Baltimore’s minor league complex is separate from the big-league complex, so I was unable to get any updates on the Major League game.

Quick hits from today….
- I thought this was baseball? Two football connections in Sarasota – Bowie’s John Ruettiger (Rudy’s nephew) playing for Bowie…Michael Flacco (Joe’s brother) for Portland
- Former Sea Dogs Jeff Corsaletti surprised me with a guest appearance…Corsaletti is an assistant coach for an area Sarasota High School Baseball team…They were getting set to play after the minor league games.
- Former Sea Dogs in the Baltimore system who were in appearance: Manny Delcarmen, Luis Exposito, Miguel Gonzalez and Yamaico Navarro.
- During Spring Training, most of the Triple-A coaching staff is assisting in the big leagues…Portland’s coaching staff worked the Pawtucket game, while the Salem staff worked the Portland contest.
- I had a chance to chat with these former Sea Dogs: Bryce Brentz, Ryan Dent, Derik Gibson, Alex Hassan, Jeremy Hazelbaker, Alex Wilson and Steven Wright.
- On Tuesday Matt Barnes starts for Portland against New Britain at Boston’s complex.
