Spring Training 2017

Posted by twinstarheelsfan , 11 February 2017 · 1,014 views

I'm going to my second annual spring training trip to Ft. Myers Feb 24, 2017 (opening day night game with the Rays)through the Nationals Sunday afternoon game Feb. 26, 2017. I will be at practice Saturday morning and Sunday morning. I'm hoping a ball will land just outside the fence near where I am standing. I'll pick up the ball and throw it back to a Twins player who is standing far away in the outfield. Neil Allen will see me throw a perfect strike to the distant player. Allen will yell at me: "Hey kid, nice throw. Come over here a minute. I want to talk to you. Have you pitched much in your career?" I'll say: "I pitcher some in high school and tried out for the UNC freshman team, but didn't make it." He'll say: "I like your style. Let's go talk to Mr. Falvey." And the rest will be history. I can just see it now. I would enjoy meeting any Twins Daily members who may be there these times. I'll be the old guy ,in jeans with a Twins shirt, sunglasses, a Twins hat, a glove with Harmon Killebrew's autograph on it, standing outside the fence waiting for a ball to come over.

I had some trouble accessing my TD account several months ago and was able to gain access through twinstaheelsfan, even though my name is tarheeltwinsfan.  I just want you to know I am one and the same. I prefer tarheeltwinsfan.Hope to meet some of you at Ft. Myers.

Maybe Mean Joe Green will throw you his jersey after you hand him an ice cold Coke?
