Spring is finally here...
Mar 5, 2010

as evidenced by my first spring training game for the NY Mets. The weather was perfect, not a cloud in the sky, low 60's with a mild breeze. Perfect day.

I shot my D300 with grip, 70-200 vr and on some shots the 1.4x tc.

The nice thing, all teams are even now. Its a new season.

David Wright's first at bat for spring resulted in a home run, hopefully a sign of things to come with Jason Bay after him:

I got to see Jason Bay at bat, the new slugging left fielder:

They also have a new center fielder in Gary Matthews Jr, until Beltran is back:

It was also my first time seeing Jeff Francoeur on the team :

R.A. Dickey started the game, but with the score going 17-11 in the Mets favor, both teams used a LOT of pitchers:

Now we can hear it from the Yankee and Philllie fans.... they like to talk a lot about the past. Lets see what happens THIS year...
