Blogging A to Z Around the World in 30 Days - Jupiter, FL

The Passenger to Paradise is a baseball fanatic, so what could be more perfect for "j" than Jupiter. Not the planet, but Jupiter, Florida. Every February/March, the Passenger rushes down for spring training. It's the most exciting time of the year for her because there is great hope for a wonderful baseball season.After all, every team has a chance in the spring.

The St. Louis Cardinals are the Passenger's team, so when she heads to Jupiter she doesn't care about any place other than Roger Dean Stadium. She watches the team on the practice fields. She waits by the parking lot gate in hope of getting an autograph from a favorite player. She thrilled when Matt Holiday stopped to sign and when Lance Lynn did the same.

Although the beaches in the area are beautiful, the Passenger seldom sees them. She's almost always at the playing fields.

How sad it must be when April arrives and all the players are gone.

Do you have a sport that you love? Have you ever been to baseball spring training.

Just popping in from the A-Z Challenge. I'm from the UK, where baseball is called 'rounders' and is a kid's game LOL!

I was on your side until I got to the part about the Cardinals. I am a Texas Rangers fan and the heartache of the last World Series is still with me.

Thanks for telling me about the UK. I've never heard of rounders. Baseball is still a kids' game! Thanks for visiting from A to Z.

Monti said...

Thanks, Jackie. Good luck with A to Z.

Chuck, it must have been heartbreaking for Rangers fans. It was exhilarating for Cardinals fans. Because I dislike Albert Pujols so much, I'm a Ranger fan for the American League.

Thanks for visiting!
