    Tim – Thanks very much for the info. Where do TOR, PHI and NYY play their minor league camp games? I have been to Pirate City and understand it’s a great facility compared to others. (?)

      Toronto plays in Dunedin. Philly plays in Clearwater. Yankees play in Tampa.

        Thanks, I guess I should have been more specific. Do you know the addresses of the minor league camps where they play the games? I am assuming they do not play at their regular minor league parks (e.g. McKechnie); but maybe they do?

          I’ve never been to those places, so I couldn’t tell you.
