|Spring Training Game- Pirates vs Orioles|
Monday, April 13, 2015
Pittsburgh is a sports town and although I usually am not a big sports fan (see Day 95), I love going to baseball games because they remind me that summer is on it’s way. I especially enjoy the nostalgia of a baseball game. I have many childhood memories of going to the game and memories of taking my son to every Pirate home opener . Today is a winning Pirate’s Home Opener day! Thinking about those days, I decided to share my recent first experience - going to a spring training game in Sarasota, Florida.

In Pennsylvania, it seems like clouds and rain trump over sun. The result is green foliage but the lack of sun can give rise to the “blues” and for some, the fight against “seasonal affective disorder .” So I thought that I would speed up my exposure to sunshine by going south to Florida this spring. I haven’t done this since my college crazy spring break days but I had an invitation and with nothing holding me back, off I went.
