3-20-10 Osceola County Stadium

Today was day 2 of the Spring Training trip and my dad and I were back at Osceola County Stadium to see the Astros and Yankees.

The day started off well when I went and watched some of the Astros minor leaguers at one of the practice fields,

It was the only ball I would get for about the first half hour or so.  When the Astros second string started hitting at the practice field directly adjacent to Osceola County Stadium, I was ready.

My dad and I left the game after all the regulars came out of the game and headed for Bradenton FL.  We would see the Pirates and Rays the next day…

Cool entry! I love hearing about Spring Training games, since I live in Texas & don’t have a facility anywhere near me. Good job!
