Man, now I wish I was going to Fort Myers this year instead of last; I would definitely take you up on your offer of hospitality around the minor league fields.

Thanks again, AJ! I really enjoy you letting us live vicariously through you. I probably won't make it to Ft. Myers this spring unfortunately, but I can't quite so for sure that I won't either because AJ and a lot of the other Twins prospects are really great, very fan-friendly, and I'm glad that the Twins encourage that.

Nice job AJ. It would be awesome to get regular articles like this from you. It really is amazing that we are able to connect so easily in our generation.
Do or do not. There is no try.

Am heading down there next weekend for the opening exhibition games. I've been to most of the camps in South Florida and I still like the Twins camp the best. The ability to take a seat in the shade right in between all the minor league fields is something we take for granted. Last year we met some friends up in Clearwater at the Phillies camp and they close off the back fields to the general public. Plus the Twins camp is less than a half hour drive to get ribs at Michelbob's!

Thanks for the update A.J. Expect it is nice settling into spring training after an exciting fall/winter. Have a great season!

If you are at the complex in the morning or early afternoon you should look for us on the minor league side!

Have a great season. Hope your wife is enjoying your relocation to Florida as well (okay, its cold and snowy in Minnesota -- kind of hard to think she wouldn't be liking the sunshine!) Thanks for all your posts over the last year -- it's always fun to read about your life in baseball (and outside it too).
