March 3 – Pittsburgh Pirates Spring Training

Thanks to Neal Huntington, the General Manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates, Debbie and I along with her brother, Dick, and his wife, Kate, were given a private tour of the team’s spring training facility in Bradenton.

Parenthetically, in addition to Neal being one of our son, Doug’s, best friends since elementary school, I had the privilege of coaching Neal in both baseball and basketball over many years.

After the tour, we drove to Dunedin, north of Tampa, where we had great seats for the Pirates’ opening game of the Grapefruit League season, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

We stopped at the Riverside Café in Bradenton on the way home for a great dinner.

Afterwards we walked out on the piers where we enjoyed yet another gorgeous Florida sunset.
