A Long Way Until Spring Training

(Toledo, OH) I wistfully stood outside the stadium yesterday and took this photo; no Mudhens were in sight.

The team captured the IL crown this season, only its second title in 109 years. We are a long 104 days away from opening day, and this fan is looking forward to a few lazy evenings on the third base line next summer.

Let's hope 2006 is as rewarding as 2005.

I'm looking forward to the start of the season too. We've yet to end up with a bad seat no matter which section we end up in.

Yes, it is a great stadium, Lisa; I must admit it took me some time to get over my anti-commercialization streak over the name.

A good time is had by all, and it is less than half the cost of a similar night at a MLB park.

And Spring practice (in Florida) starts in Jan./Feb.?

At least (so far) we've had good weather for opening days.

Not soon enough...
