My Morning @ Camelback Ranch

Made it safely to Arizona with my buddy Jason early in the morning. We actually experienced a bit of snow in the 10 fwy passing Morongo Casino. I'm serious!

Before heading to Tempe to catch the Dodgers/Angels game, we stopped at Camelback Ranch to see the workouts.

It didn't rain and it wasn't that cold. Just cloudy.

Jason found about 6 balls all over the outside field.

We didn't really see the workouts since we arrived around 10:40 and most players were already leaving to catch a bus towards Tempe or Scottsdale.

My goal was to meet the young kids. Since nobody really cared to talk to them it easy to approach them.

Rubby De La Rosa!

After this we drove to Tempe and we did make it on time to catch the first pitch. It was interesting. I'll just say for now that Matt Kemp got lost in Tempe. I'll write that post soon.
