Spring Training

Our church group purchased tickets for a Spring Training game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers at Surprise Stadium (the Rangers home field). The tickets were purchased in January. 

Well.... the weather on game day in March SUCKED!!! It was cloudy, rainy, and a chilly 62 degrees F.  Surprise Stadium is our closest Spring Training Facility and it is a VERY nice place to be - in better weather!

The infield was covered when we arrived at our seats. 

Good to know!!!!                                    

Finally, they unveiled the infield!

Then they covered it back up!
The players warmed up anyway.

Rain was coming down pretty well causing some puddles.

It was too cold for my hubby, so after we ate (it was part of our ticket package) he sat in the elevator area while I watched the game. We had a bit of a stalemate. He wanted to go home, and I wanted to stay. But I did not want to stay if he was cold and he did not want to leave if I wanted to see the game. So, we compromised. He sat in the warm area and I watched 2.5 innings. 

I got to see some of my favorite players pitch and bat and then we left, in the rain.

Zack Gallen pitched.

Alek Thomas was up to bat first!

Next up was Jake McCarthy. In 2022, I purchased a mystery baseball for the DBacks charity and he was the signer! 

I also got to watch Christian Walker bat and play first, but sadly no photos.

I LOVE baseball!! What else can I say? I would love to see a game in each of the Cactus League Stadiums, but so far, I have seen three games, all at Surprise Stadium.

GO DBacks!!!
