Down in the Desert – Day 1

March 15, 2012

It’s Day 1 of our trip out to Arizona to take in some Cactus League spring training baseball. In our brief four-day time down here we’ll be visiting 7 of the 10 spring training complexes here. Our first facility takes us to Maryvale, AZ which is home to the Milwaukee Brewers.

Following a 6-4 victory over the San Diego Padres, it’s time for a quick dinner and then up to Peoria to visit the spring truing home of both the Seattle Mariners and the San Diego Padres.

The Mariners, who entered the game against the Giants with a 10-3 record, lost by a final score of 7-5. Time to head back to the hotel and rest up for another full day of baseball. Check back tomorrow night as we will be visiting Salt River Fields (Diamondbacks & Rockies) and Phoenix Municipal Stadium (Oakland Athletics).
