A Picture from Spring Training
Somehow, I failed to show this picture of Brian Roberts and me that my dad took during Orioles Spring Training in Sarasota. Brian's dad was selling a book about base-stealing that he wrote and if you bought the book, Brian would sign it and something else for no additional charge. Since B-Rob was hurt, he was able to do this while the game was going on. It was a pretty cool experience and I might try to now get him to sign this picture for me. If you look very closely, you can see that I am holding this card in my hand.
Brian seemed like a very cool guy and it was very nice to be able to meet him. Things like this is why I love Spring Training. You would never be able to do that during the regular season. I always look forward to my trips down there and hope to be able to do it again next year.
