I’ve had the good fortune to have good to Spring Training games for the Mariners for several years in Peoria, AZ and there is something special about being able to drive to see any number of teams play on a given lazy Spring afternoon.
In any case, be sure and check out the following article from Monday’s USA Today. Tommy gives his final reflection back on Vero, and I think it’s appropriate we give this special place it’s due as we begin the transition to Arizona. It’s only fitting that Lasorda manage the team’s last game in Vero Beach. It’s a fitting tribute to one of the greatest personalities to ever be associated with the Dodger franchise.
