Spring Training Trip in Pictures

Our first visit to Space Coast Stadium, home of the Washington Nationals
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright,
The band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light,
And somewhere men are laughing, and little children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville — mighty Casey has struck out.

Kevin really wanted Bryce Harper's autograph, but had to settle for Stephen Strasburg's.   While we were impressed that he signed balls, programs, and various baseball paraphernalia; he seemed as though it was a part of some sort of punishment for being tardy to class. 

Maybe he was just having a bad day.  I'd hate to think he was simply patronizing the very people who make his fat salary possible.

Strasburg was the name du jour.  Even Peter Gammons got in on the action.

The foul ball that Alyssa "caught".  It would be more accurate to say, "the ball that found Alyssa".
