2008-02-06 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Gary, Thanks for already answering two of my question during this chat. That is a new record for me. I don't get to travel much but would love to go down to Florida and watch the jays during spring training I'm sure you watched spring training baseball plenty of times before just wondering is it worth it?
(dogtothedog from Toronto)
YES.

It is absolutely worth the time, expense, and hassle. I've been fortunate enough to attend spring training in Arizona and Florida, and it really is an absolute blast. My experiences have been universally positive, even dressing in a suit and walking two miles in 197 degree heat to get half an inning with Ray Fosse to pimp BP 97.

I think that if you do go down, my advice is to not overschedule yourself. Leave some time to hang out, make the effort to start some conversations with other fans, and just immerse yourself in the vacation. It's pretty awesome.

And of all the games I've ever attended, including a wall-shaking Clemens/Stewart matchup when it mattered, my favorite in-person game was a game in ARZ where I got three foul balls, and didn't have to move more than 2 feet either way to get 'em. (Should've kept one, but gave them to kids.)

It's AWESOME, and I say that as a jaded 42-year old. (Gary Huckabay)
