I figured I’d provide an update from Sunny Florida. Although, word from my Front Office co-worker who is down there now, is that it is actually pretty breezy and cool in Ft. Myers today.
I know, I know…don’t worry, I let him have it for complaining about it being “breezy” whilst we’re stuck in a foot of snow.
Anyhow, he did have an interesting story to report from our Minor League Complex. He said he was watching the Puerto Rican World Baseball Classic team workout (we’re allowing them to use our facilities to train), when Bernie Williams (who is on the Puerto Rican WBC team) ran over to one of the other Red Sox fields at the facility and started taking BP with our minor leaguers who were praciticing there.
I thought that was a pretty funny story. Must have been quite a sight seeing uber-Yankee Bernie Williams surrounded by Red Sox, taking BP at a Red Sox field.
I have to say though (and I don’t think I’m alone here) – Bernie has always seemed to me to be the classiest of ballplayers.
That’s my “sunny” Florida update for today!
All the best from the home office (the Boston Front Office was closed today due to the snow)!
