GREETINGS FROM GOODYEAR…
Yesterday afternoon I arrived at the Reds Spring Training Complex in Goodyear, Arizona and today I’ll be pressed into action as I cover the Split-Squad Game against the Giants in Scottsdale.
I anticipate that I’ll be a little rusty keeping score, but then again, it should be like riding a bike. Be sure to follow me on Twitter this afternoon as I’ll be providing updates from that non-broadcast game.
The gracious staff at the Residence Inn had this very sweet gift waiting for me yesterday when I checked into my room…
My colleague Larry Herms and I met up with our good friend Stuart King last night (formerly of the Reds front office, currently with the Dodgers) and his father, uncles and friends at one of our favorite spots in Glendale. The guys revealed that they are avid readers of Better Off Red, which makes them even cooler in my book!
And here’s just more proof that Bill Bray is a great dude…
I’ll have lots more in a bit. Time to take in the fresh air and batting practice. Photos forthcoming.
Expect good news!
