This year is going to be difficult to find an answer, sorry. Not the most memorable spring, though one that I could see having ramifications for the year to come when it comes to how spring is covered and how teams handle spring training for fans, for players, and for media. The scene Ben Frederickson described of Nogowski giving his two bats to the kids in the stands hours after finding out he was on the roster is a cool scene.
A favorite spring memory -- I have many. As a kid, I got to go to spring training in Arizona with my father and it was the first time I ever saw big leaguers and big league teams, and I got to see Gary Sheffield get tutored ... OK, OK ... schooled by a veteran about how to call for a popup in the infield. Sheffield was a third baseman back then. As far as time on the beat one of the memorable moments was on the back field watching BP, when Green Bay Packers executive Ron Wolf, part of the team's ring of fame, stood beside me at the cage. Albert Pujols was taking his swings.
"This is what it must have sounded like to watch Babe Ruth or Ted Williams take BP," Wolf said.
He's not wrong.
