Baseball Memories

Since my childhood, I have always had a love of the game of baseball. Growing up in a small town in Idaho, I would spend each summer shagging balls for the local Pioneer League team, the Idaho Falls Angels. For every five foul balls I retrieved I got a snow cone, what a deal. I would watch baseball on television and envy all those who were in attendance. When we moved to Arizona, I attended as many spring training games as I could. It was great, but I was still left wanting more as the teams departed to their respective cities and I was left watching the Phoenix Firebirds. Finally the Diamondbacks came to town and I had something to look forward to. I have religiously followed the team and been there every step of the way as this franchise has grown. I am getting very antsy now that spring training is less than a month away. I am scanning spring training schedules getting a list of games I want to attend. I’m still not sure when I am going to get any work done as it seems I will be gone nearly every afternoon to a game somewhere in the valley.
