As a fan of baseball and believe all workers / employees should always try to get the best salary they can. Baseball has been very good to Bud Selig as an owner and commissioner his current annual salary is $18.4 million! For more on Bud Selig visit:
Derek Jeter Talking About The Game
Tomorrow is Jeters final spring training game, and Monday is the start of the end of a brilliant baseball career.
I remember going from rookie ball to A, to double A, then to triple A. At every level it seemed like the game was faster. The bigger the situation, the more the game speeds up. That’s all mental. It messes people up.
Houston Astros Spring Training
Osceola County Stadium is the spring training home of the Houston Astros and the smallest spring training ballpark with a seating capacity of 5,300. If you are staying in the Orlando area, and have never seen a spring training ball game I would choose this ballpark. The prices for tickets are reasonable, and the best food prices…
tickets are reasonable, a
You will leave the Astros ballpark feeling this is old-time spring training.
Spring Training Braves Ballparks
The Braves ballpark Champion Stadium part of the ESPN Wide World of Sports of Complex, and Disney is nice looking from the outside, it just does not give off that spring training feel like the other ballparks.
Once inside and looking out over the outfield it is the absence of advertising on the outfield walls and the oversized scoreboard that draws your attention. Having been to every spring training ballpark except the Mets and Phillies I came away feeling a little disappointed in the venue. If you are a baseball fan or someone that has never been to spring training and visiting Orlando, I suggest visiting the Astros or the Tigers in Lakeland, before seeing a game here.
Spring Training Is For Managers To
Arrived yesterday in Winter Park Florida checked into The Alfond Inn (new and very nice surprise) dropped off our bags grabbed my camera equipment and dashed-off to the Braves spring training home ballpark. The Braves were playing the Nationals who have new rookie manager Matt Williams. Within the game, two plays stand out. The Nationals had runners on first and third base with one out, and Matt Williams pulled an old Billy Martin move, sending the runner on first base to have him caught in a rundown and the runner on third base breaks for home, the play worked with the runner scoring. The second play came late in the game , with the score tied 4-4 no outs, and the bases loaded Matt Williams moved one of his outfielders to the infield creating 5-infielders with three fielder on the left side the batter hit a lined out to the left side of the infield, but the next batter crushed one to a vacant right field, clearing the bases with a with a triple, and the score was now 7 to 4. I liked that Matt Williams a rookie manager of a team that’s expected to win its division was not afraid to try out some plays. After all, it is spring training for managers also, experiment a little, and it is fun for the fans also….

PNC Park Pittsburgh
Sitting on the Allegheny River, and the “New Pittsburgh” is beautiful PNC Park home to the rising Pittsburgh Pirates. This from a life long baseball fan who is also huge Yankees fan (grew-up in the shadow of Yankee Stadium) and is only haunted by one game, the 7th game of the 1960 World Series. If you are a Yankees fan, October 13, 1960 is nothing but heartache. No defeat for me hurts and stills hurts more than that one. Here are a few side notes, October 8th, 1960 was the first World Series game I attended, and for years sitting in an umbrella stand at my house was one of Bill Mazeroski’s game used bats from the 1960’s until I gave it to a neighbor who was from Pittsburgh.
