Play Ball!

Spring Training appears to be the issue du jour. Probably because it starts today. This article has an interesting look at how Arizona appears to have the upperhand over Florida. Its interesting to see that Arizona has been able to nab 6 teams from Florida in recent years. Can the valley nab a couple more and reach the tipping point?

Also, a permanent home is being sought for the Cactus League exhibit that is currently on display at the Mesa Historical Museum. Since Mesa is such a rich part of the Spring Training history, lets hope they can hold on to this museum.

Even the Gaylord promoters are getting in on the action. People started reporting a new commercial a little while back, and it popped up on YouTube yesterday as well. Connecting a renowned economic driver like spring training to the attraction of a Gaylord resort is a smart move:

The next smart move would be to actually get some teams to locate in East Mesa, or anywhere in the East Valley for that matter.
