Early Images from Spring Training: Kemp

Our own rbnlaw checked in today with pictures from Spring Training. I liked this one of Beastmode. He appears lighter than last season (confirmed by this LA Times piece from Saturday).

Two Bats Are Better Than One

Keep those pics coming, rbn (and other SoSG readers)!

Looking good Bison

I'm a goddamn celebrity!
This was a total fluke. I flew to El Paso to meet my kid and drive her back to OC. We stopped for the night in Phoenix, and it turned out we were close to Camelback Ranch.
The opportunity was too good to turn down, so we had to stop in.

She was stoked to get the pic of Matty. My photo sucked.

We are going back next year at this time. Small crowds, and the players are super relaxed.

Also met Dodger Rob. He's a special needs guy who knows more about the Dodgers than I could ever remember. Dude was super stoked to see every player walk by, and had an actual conversation with Ethier. Awesome.


Still buzzing from the experience.

Thanks, Dodger Rob.

And thanks Dusty for posting the pic. I planned on sending all of them, bit the Matty pic from my kid rulez! Good for her.

Very cool, rbn! If it's the last thing I do, I'm getting over there next ST. Maybe to coincide w PJ's annual sojourn around St. Patrick's Day.

rbnlaw said...

I told the kids we'd go next year as well. Pres. Day weekend suits us.

If I run into you or PJ there, it may actually be the last thing I do. #watchout

The State of Arizona would have to add a drunken Dodger fan clause into their immigration laws

Neeebs and RBN - start the paperwork!

If it's an SoSG Spring Training Fest next year I'm so fucking there. I'll sleep out in the desert ground with my peeps if i have to.

Dammit, this f'ing Downton Abbey season finale is a TWO-hour finale. FUCK! I need to play xbox

@Sax

Except that hippie PBS station ripped off the final 26 minutes to shill for DVDs of episodes that almost everyone on earth has already seen.

Can't wait to get to CBR. We will be there March 7-9, and will have some great photos to post for ya (hubby is a pro photographer!).

I've never been to Camelback Ranch.

I've been to Camel Toe Lane.
