Some more pictures from Spring Training.

As promised some more photos from both of the Spring Training games I went too.

First up is a lot of Cubs photos.  It was my wife's camera and she's a Cubs fan.

Not Ryan Braun.
Braun was off playing somewhere else during the Cubs game.  Here's a look at the infield of Maryvale Park.
That's Steve Clevager, who signed a card for me. I don't know who that bald guy is.

That's former Brewer Pat Listach #4, the 3rd base coach. Didn't get his autograph, not yet anyways, I'll be sending him some cards TTM this summer.

A hose and the cubs stretching.

More of the same.  I have to say that the park has a lot of picnic lawn seating and it's only 8 bucks! We opted for the infield reserve, but if I ever get to go back I'd just go to weekday games and pay the 8 bucks.  The second game we went to on Tuesday only had about 4000 people and you could sit just about anywhere you wanted.
The photos get a little grainy we were sitting all the way over on the first base side of the park.  But not too terrible for a cell phone camera.

That's #6 Bryan LaHair, which is French for the Hair!!

There's Travis Ishikawa on First with the Cubs first base coach Dave McKay.  I think Chris Narveson on the mound, and a tiny Rickie Weeks on second.

That's Starlin Castro after his 4th inning home run, the first run of the game.

6th inning stretch sausage race!!! I think the Hotdog won!

After looking through my photos it became apparent my photographer didn't take any of the second game other than these pre-game warm up photos.  The gates to Maryvale don't open till 11:30, but the team store opens at 10 and they have a little area on the main concourse roped off.  That's were a bunch of these were taken.

There's Mr. Yount.  I'm not sure what Robin's role with the team is this year, but he was at both games.

The pitchers hanging out talking about the surprising lack of cheese curds at the stadium.

A great photo if you like Ryan Braun ass!  From left to right.  Scooter Gennett, Caleb Gindl, Ryan Braun, Travis Ishikawa, Norichika Aoki, and Rickie Weeks.

Travis and Ryan and my wife's finger.

#90 not sure who he is, Scooter Gennett.
And finally one for the ladies, Ryan Braun bending over!!!
