Spring Training started this week, and so far we've been providing coverage from a far. As I mentioned a few months ago, I'm moving to Bradenton this year and will be covering everything that is down there. When I say everything, I mean everything. Spring Training, the Marauders, the GCL Pirates, instructs, mini camps, orange juice sales at Mixon's. All of those things. But mostly the orange juice.
Unfortunately my lease doesn't start until Wednesday, and I probably won't start my coverage until I finish moving in, which will probably be a week from today. However, we will have some coverage before then.
Wilbur Miller will be down at Pirate City this weekend and next week, proving some photos and updates on big league camp. Wilbur will also be back down at Pirate City later during the Spring to give his thoughts on minor league camp.
Also, I'm pleased to announce that Jessica Quiroli will be joining the site this year as a contributor. Jessica has covered minor league baseball...
