Many sports fans were at a loss this past weekend. With football on hiatus for another off-season, it’s time to get psyched about America’s national pastime: baseball. For the serious fan (or the person married to a serious fan that just wants to get away from the cold), it might be time to consider a trip your favorite team’s spring training camp.
The most popular destination are Florida and Arizona, where you’ll find just about every team gearing up for next season. You can see the stars in exhibition games from seats way closer than you’d be able to afford at your local stadium, and it’s far easier for autograph hounds to get your baseballs, jerseys or other memorabilia in front of your favorite player in the laid-back atmosphere of training camp.
