Spring Rolls in with High Hopes for the Baseball Season

Tempe, Arizona

Take me out to the ball game,

Take me out with the crowd;

Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,

I don’t care if I ever get back.

Let me root, root, root for the home team,

If they don’t win, it’s a shame.

For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,

At the old ball game.

 

 

Mapping the Day

High hopes abound at MLB Spring Training camps.  Players, coaches, scouts, front office brass, owners and fans converge to see what the upcoming season will hold.   

Angels Spring Training  Minors pitching drills  Angels vs. Rangers

We just returned from Los Angeles Angels spring training in Tempe, Arizona.  The excitement there is palpable.

 

Local Story

We started our day at the minor league training camp.  The minor leaguers are inspiring to watch.  Every man is trying his best to show talent, improvement, attitude and promise.  It is an exciting place to be an observer of baseball’s future.

 

View from the Table

After an inspiring morning on the minor league side, we walked over to Tempe Diablo Stadium for the major league game between the Angels and the Texas Rangers.  The intimate baseball theater puts fans very close to the game.  You can hear the ball smack into the pitcher’s glove, the wave of practice swings through the warm desert air, the crack of the bat to ball, the grunt of an infielder stretching to catch a hit and the thud of errant balls into fans’ hands.

 

Recipe

Peanuts are the quintessential baseball food.  Salty, roasted goodness washed down by an ice-cold beer makes the baseball experience complete.  Back in our kitchen however, we are transforming peanuts into a full peanutty menu.  Here is inspiration for your Opening Day Party.
