More spring info
I’ve been asked a bunch of times if I’m going down to Spring Training, and the answer is yes. I plan to be down in Sarasota a few days early and will be reporting live once camp starts with lots of updates, pictures, anecdotes etc., here on the blog, on Twitter and Orioles.com.
These dates were mentioned in the earlier blog posts,but I didn’t want them to get lost along the way.
