My brother just called. He’s in Lakeland, FL, watching tonight’s game between the Tigers and the Reds.
He and his friends are trying to get Jason Romano to sign a baseball for him, though he said that he couldn’t figure out why they would try to do that. To have a story to tell, I guess.
Either way, I’m envious. I’ve never been able to go to Spring Training. Maybe when my son (7 months old) is old enough to make the trip with me. That’ll be fun, actually.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
