Take me out to the ball game, take me out to the park! Last week was the last week of the Grapefruit League’s spring training. Between February 22 and March 30, more than 1.6 million fans attended Major League Baseball’s annual off-seasons spring training in Florida at various locations throughout the Sunshine State.
We parked our seats in the seats at Space Coast Stadium in sunny Viera, Florida, where our Washington Nationals train. The training facility is intimate – so much so that you can hang out and chat with General Manager Mike Rizzo (yes, Bill did!) and ask players for autographs as they come out of the training facility (yes, Patrick did!).
While my husband and son were having their own fun I was studying the ballpark concession menus. There were the usual hot dogs, brats, hamburgers, pizza, etc. But, only in Florida would a grilled blackened grouper sandwich be on the menu. How could I resist? For only $9 I got a fresh piece of grilled grouper on a bun with hot fries.
Take me out to the ballgame…anytime and anywhere! Go Nats!
