I am looking for suggestions regarding spring training.
I have never been to spring training before, and recently was discussing the possibility of coordinating a trip with my brother (he is in Anaheim, I am in DC) for a long weekend in late February or early to mid-March. I know that I have read comments on this site before referring to spring training excursions. To those who have made the trip before, did you enjoy the experience? What specifically would you recommend in terms of places to stay, places to eat, things to do, when to go, or anything else that might enhance the experience? How often do you usually stay? Is there access to the practice facilities when the players report, only when the games begin, not at all?
Any observations from the community would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
