Hitting For The Cycle: Spring Training in Tampa
The Boys are back.
Bicycle Stories will be making periodic spring training baseball visits in the Tampa Bay area, using the bicycle as my vehicle to see kids with bats and baseballs asking players for autographs.
Snow might be piled up around the country. But here in Tampa, it was 55 degrees and windy with cool air rushing in from the northwest.
The grass was green and the sky was blue and it was baseball again at the Yankees spring training home off a six-lane commercial boulevard.
The northerners donned shorts and T-shirts. But the Floridians wore jackets and hoodies.
Lots of kids were at Yankees camp.
