Eight days ’til we depart for Clearwater, effectively one week — departing early Wed Feb 26 to arrive in time for the Spring Training opener. More than ready to escape the winter here – call me a modified snowbird.
Even the Phanatic has had a rough winter; rumor has it he’s going to work the entire spring this time around.
Guess we’ll be seeing more of him around town, and hanging out on Clearwater Beach.
Got my copy of the Phillies official spring training pocket schedule today.
As there was last year – but frankly I had forgotten about until I opened the schedule – there will be an intra squad game on next Tuesday, a day before the official opener. Perhaps next year I’ll make it down a little earlier.
