Day 110 Pirates Spring Training Baseball

Spring Training Game- Pirates vs Orioles
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.

Day 109 Sunshine-Florida

Florida Sunshine

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.
