It’s never too early to start dreaming of spring baseball, and we’re all one step closer to that reality now that the Braves have released their 2014 Spring Schedule.  According to a tweet from the official Braves’ Twitter account…

 

Never mind that it’s just November.  After that initial tweet, a number of successive tweets followed, each one getting me more pumped baseball.  I love the Hot Stove season, but I always feel a touch lost in the off-season when I cannot watch baseball every single day.  If you didn’t see the tweets, I’ll share them here, and hopefully all our readers will get just as pumped as I am….

 

 

Of course it remains to be seen who those pitchers and catchers will be at this point.  While we have a great idea about who most of them will be, there will be some possible surprises, and that’s what the Hot Stove season is all about.  So, while we can’t exactly enjoy baseball daily in November and December, we can study the game, keep up with off-season trades and strategies, and build the mental and emotional momentum for the coming spring!

 

 

So fans, mark your calenders now!  Even if you’re unable to physically travel to Florida to take in spring games, some of them always air on TV, and of course we’ll be reporting everything you need to know about goings-on in spring.

This will mark the 17th year the Atlanta Braves have trained during the spring at Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.  I used to go all the time until life and bills got in the way, but if you have never taken a trip to Florida in spring to take in spring Braves’ baseball, you don’t know what you’re missing!  If you’re interested in going this year, check out ticket prices and start planning now.  For more information, I’ll share this last tweet from the Braves’ Twitter account…

    Ages ago, my oldest brother was in Oconee County HS’s marching band, either 1992 or 1993. My parents were chaperons for their spring trip, and so my other brother and I were dragged along. We did Disney, a Braves Spring Training game, and a one day ‘cruise’ to the Bahamas.

    The game we went to was against the Royals. The Royals pretty much stunk it up (plus we harassed one of their relief pitchers – we were sitting in the bleachers on the Royals side of the field. We’d make whistling sounds up as he was pitching, then whistled down as it came back to him. It messed up his entire routine and he ended up giving up around 5 runs against the Braves.) This was also down at West Palm Beach still. There was a lot of access to the Braves players still then.

    One of our flag girls got to hug David Justice (still a high point of her life). Deion Sanders ignored everyone. Steve Bedrosian stayed for nearly an hour singing autographs and talking to everyone. Steve Avery stopped for a minute to talk to fans and take a few pictures. Also, Otis Nixon said hi to everyone as he walked out of the stadium. The Royals players were apparently still po’ed at us for making such a ruckus that they didn’t talk to anyone. :D It was quite a thrill for a pre-teen boy, and quite an experience seeing Spring Training baseball.
