I started planning my trip to St. Lucie on Tuesday. It’s looking like I’ll be down for a good week and a half, covering most of pitchers and catchers and all of the workout week. It’s such a fun time of year. There’s no pressure, at least terms of wins and losses, it’s laid back, it’s all about baseball, the town is mostly decked out in Mets fans and there is a nice, honest concentration on the game that makes for a refreshing experience. I’m fortunate and thankful that SNY sends me down every year to photograph and blog about it, because it’s my favorite time of year to be writing this blog. I love the imagery and focus and it’s good to know I can help relay it to people unable to there.
