Now shipping: The Complete Guide to Spring Training 2018 / Florida!
Spring training means new beginnings for everyone. Hope is in the air, with rookies fighting for roster spots and veterans prepping for another campaign. Any team in spring training has a shot to contend for a title, as the baseball world begins anew.
Hardcore baseball fans scout their favorite teams and eagerly track every open roster spot. Casual fans head to spring training in search of the perfect Florida experience, happy to sip a brew at the outfield bar.
This book is for both kinds of fans. Coverage is arranged by area: Gulf Coast (where the Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, and Tampa Bay Rays train), greater Tampa Bay (where the Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, and Toronto Blue Jays train), Orlando (where the Atlanta Braves train), and the Treasure Coast (where the Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, St. Louis Cardinals, and Washington Nationals train).
Changes for the 2018 spring training season are highlighted, including new coverage of The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches/Palm Beach County and a fond farewell to Champion Stadium, as the Atlanta Braves prep for a Sarasota County move in 2019.
Each chapter features:
- Best seats in each ballpark, whether you want comfort, shade, accessibility or autographs
- Ballpark tips
- Must-sees before and after the games
- Training information, to plan a trip before the games start
- Information on new and renovated ballparks
- Travel tips: Low fares at nearby airports, alternative routes (beat the traffic!) and freeway shortcuts
- College games: create your own day-night doubleheaders
- Points of interest for the baseball history fan
- Changes for spring training 2018 and beyond
