The grass is perfectly manicured (kudos to Eric Hansen and his crew), with the familiar diamond pattern mowed into the outfield. The sky is perfectly blue, without a cloud in sight, and the San Gabriels are in clear view. Probably going to cool off considerably by game time, but it’s great to be here again. The team is already on the field for stretching at 3:33 p.m., so I guess they’re treating it like just another spring training game, which is what it is. But it’s still going to be a great night to be here, so come on out if you don’t have plans. If nothing else, it would be a good chance to test out the new parking plan.
