Jamie’s Fantasy Camp Journal

Last night, I took what might be my final swings until Reds Fantasy Camp.  This time I wore real batting gloves and used an old Wladimir Balentien bat.  I felt good and am happy to report that I suffered no injuries (or blisters)….and I didn’t hit anyone with any pitches.

As the kickoff to camp gets closer, I’m getting more and more excited.  My travel plans have been finalized and my hotel accomodations are all set.  I’ll be flying in to beautiful Phoenix on Saturday the 5th and will meet up with the rest of the campers that night for an introductory get-together.  After that, it all begins!

Should I wear my socks high or low?  Oh, and I was advised (with conviction) to wear a cup during the games.  I usually wear one everyday anyway (especially during office hours).

I’m looking forward to sharing with you a photo of me wearing a Reds uniform.  It should look  something like 10 pounds of butter in a 5 pound bag. 

You’ll be able to see all of my Fantasy Camp photos and the painful/hilarious/sad daily recaps here on BOR (once camp begins).

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

The Reds Caravan starts tomorrow!  It’s hard to believe that this will be my fifth straight year traveling on the bus with Marty and Brandon.  We usually have a blast and I anticipate nothing different this year.  I’m thankful to be traveling with one of my best pals, Ryan Rizzo.  Now that Ryan’s a huge local commercial celebrity, the star-power on the West tour has now reached epic proportions. 

Reds-Caravan-LOGO.jpgI really hope to see many of you on the western swing of this year’s winter tour (especially all of you folks in my hometown of Hamilton).  But if you’re not able to see us “out West,” the North and the South tours are going to be pretty cool, too.  So come out and support the team! 

Jarrod Rollins and I will be keeping you updated on all of the Reds Caravan happenings here on Better Off Red.  And get this – many of the Caravan stops will be streamed live!
