Great to see the lush green ground below as we approached Tampa airport earlier this afternoon. What a delightful airport, frankly, compared to the dingy Newark trappings we left behind. The car rental at TPA used to be just across the street form the luggage area – what a pleasure! But a surprise today – no one is happy with the new arrangement put in place last week, requiring transport by Tram over to the car rental complex. However we did get our first glimpse of a fan with that famous cherry red hat fronted by the white “P”.
Actually, the Phillies will sport a different hat for spring training this year, with the Liberty Bell displaying the “P”.
… including the green version they’ll be sporting on St. Patty’s Day.
But today, all of major league baseball wore a special “SD” baseball cap during spring training games, in memory of the students who were gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High on February 14.
