Play Ball!! Well, Not Quite Yet...  
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Spring Training 2007 has begun.  Over next few weeks, players invited to their respective ball clubs Spring Training workouts will try to win a spot on the 25-man roster.  Some teams have spots open while others are pretty much set.  Each team will start with 40 players and a few non-roster invitees who will also vie for a spot on the big league club.  I can't wait to see what the Tigers do this spring.

It's nice to be taking it easy from writing for a change.  I'll enjoy the time off until I feel the need to write again.  So, if you have read my V-Day fic, thanks.  If you haven't, get to it because you won't be disappointed.  People are slowly checking it out but I would like to see more.  Plus I have to catch up on my reading over on 12 Days and I hear that I'm not the only one.  Hopefully I can some read over the next few days.

I'm sitting here reading a panoramic history of ballparks. I can't wait for Spring Training to get into full swing!!

I was going to ask about that last night. How good was it?

ST will get going once all the players have reported in. Today, catchers and pitchers have their first workout.

The book is highly recommended for any baseball fan. It's a great look at ballparks old and new. For example, not only does it have the old Tiger Stadium, but pics of Comerica Park. It's a little late on the new Busch (and the seats at Kauffman are still red instead of blue), but it's got a lot of great photos in it. You should check it out!

What's the book called??

Ballparks: A Panoramic History : )

One of the two authors is Jim Sutton, if that helps.

Thanks, Abby. I'll try to find it at the local library sometime or bookstore.
