just noticed patty, watching the Oriole vs the mets today 6pm uk time in spring training, is this a coincadnce or have you arranged it so i have to watch them???

Tony, I hope you suffer watching them today. I guess you'll route for the Mets, then huh? I hope the Birds play well. I usually don't pay too much attention to spring training records, though. They mean nothing but at least you get to see a few players who will be "sent down" to the minors at the start of the season.

When's your first game .. Cleveland's, that is?

Devil Rays! Devil Rays!
Sorry, I just had to bust in and shout my love for tha Tampa Bay Devil Rays. LOL. being from Minnesota i should be a Twins fan...but NO i am an oddball and happen to be one of the few fans of the worst teams in baseball! (the fact that they are so bad is why i love 'em!)

Ahhh i adore baseball...been a fan since i was a little child. i try to make it to as many games as possible every year--usually Twins/Rays games in which i cheer loadly for the Rays with all the Twins fans around me looking at me like i'm insane and giving me dirty looks. good times. :D

the first live game i get to see over here off the indians in 26th april geeee thats a long wait, our 1st game of the season is the reds in the new all american ball park, herd its only just over 400ft outfield so must have been built for ken jnr

The new park is designed in the same vein as "Oriole Park at Camden Yards". It is the prototype of the new ones being built these days. Gone are the modern looking ones. All are being built like those of yesteryear. First game on TV for you IS a long way off, Tony. What do you do in between the games? Can you get them on the radio?

Tony, I'm glad you enjoy the sport. I think most Europeons misunderstand, AND miss, what it has to offer. I can't imagine a summer without it, although we've seen a strike or two in the past. It made summer here dreadfully long.... Have you ever been to the US and seen a game?

Batter up!

patty, ive never been to the us , its a dream of mine because apart from my love of the beautiful game i am a avid civil war buff and can only get a limited amount of good books/dvd/videos about both of the things, maybe soon i want to visit the gettysberg battlefield and sites like jacobs field
 
Re: lets play ball!!!! by peripatetically on 28 March 2003 3:34pm
 
Tony, I used to be so obsessd with the civil war. Can you believe that?!?!?!?!!? When I have some extra time, I'll cah with you about it. Right now, Ive got a bunch of things I must do around the house. But, WOW, somethig else we have in common!! And they are unusual "things" for an Englishman like yourself. Patty~
