Jennifer Hilderbrand-US PRESSWIRE
Arizona Diamondbacks, prepare yourselves for the second annual "Snakecharmer Comes to Spring Training" fest!!!! I had so much fun last year, my first time there, hanging out at the Salt River Fields complex and talking to players and coaches and seeing baseball in a truly neat environment. Oh, and hanging out with Snakepitters too, I guess. ;) So I decided to do it again this year!
This year, my trip will fall across the second weekend in March. (Not power-soccer related this time.) I realize that's when WBC games are being played, and unfortunately crowds and hotel prices are going to be a bit higher, but my local family is out of town the first weekend. So, I've decided to go to the White Sox/Diamondbacks game @ SRF March 9th, and on the 10th, we're making the Canada vs USA WBC game at Chase Field a SnakepitFest!! Both games start at 1pm.
Jim will be taking Paypal orders for the USAvCAN game next week or so, when we know prices and where exactly we'll be sitting. For the spring training game, well, it depends on how many of you all can come. If a lot of people want to meet up, we'll do the lawn. If it's just a few people, then sitting closer (and shadier) would be nice.
I'll be in town a few days before that, but I haven't decided what other games to hit, and what to do with my cousins and other family. So who knows, I may run into some of you elsewhere. :)
