Dal retro di copertina: Make Your SPRING TRAINING Dreams Come True!
IN THE SPRING, professional baseball teams turn Florida into every fan's dream destination. For the teams, Spring Training represents a new beginning, the first step on a pilgrimage to the World Series. For the fan, Spring Training represents the opportunity to watch the game's heroes up close and personal for just a few dollars and maybe even get their autographs.
BUT every one of the 17 stadiums is different. Each has its pluses and minuses, so capturing the ideal Spring Training experience can be elusive without the right information.
This book is your key to the ideal Spring Training experience -- at one park or many! For the serious fan, it offers five themed, week-long itineraries that combine baseball fun with theme park thrills, lazy days at the beach, and quiet interludes at the old fishin' hole.
"All the information one could hope to find on the Florida ballparks where 18 major league teams train each spring ... Byrd is the consummate baseball fan."
-- Kim Cool, Venice Gondolier Sun
-- Callie Stuhler, US Airways Attaché magazine
"Detailed analyses of each stadium ... extensive advice on acquiring autographs."
-- Harry Shattuck, Houston Chronicle
Alan Byrd visits every Spring Training camp in Florida. He tastes every hot dog and every specialty food at the stadiums, and samples the beer. He sits in box seats and bleachers, tries the standing room, and checks for sun and shade. He tries for autographs at every park and reads every program. And he checks out all the great restaurants and nearby attractions to make sure you'll have plenty to do before and after the game. It's a tough job, but Alan's willing to make the sacrifice.
