Road Trip to Orioles Spring Training in Sarasota, FL! (Post here if you are going to ST)

Recommended Posts

We made it to BWI. Nothing stopping us now.

Glad I realized that our priceline rental car was at the wrong airport and got it corrected before I showed up at the wrong place. Got another car at the right place. Tonight's game tickets in my pocket.

Anyone have recommendations for free parking within walking distance of the stadium? Last year, I somehow ended up parking a few blocks away on a grassy park area, following the lead of some other people I saw. There was no sign saying that parking was allowed, but I took a chance and it worked out. Not really wanting to risk that again this year!

Drove around last year looking for the cheapest deal, but could not find anything below $7.00. This year the wife is dropping me off for most games I'm attending.

I drive the SUV, bring a crowd of 5 or more and park right across the street for $20 - good deal. Easy in, easy out....

We attended our first game yesterday, a Cardinals road trip with the Nationals. Traffic management getting into the place was horrendous -- about 45 minutes to cover a mile and a half -- and handicapped parking was a long walk and an uphill ramp to the entrance. The stadium staff were great and it's a nice facility for spring training.

The outcome was as horrendous as the traffic getting there, an 11-1 shellacking by the Nationals. Beat reporter write-up Cardinals defense was sloppy; Nats defense was sharp. In the 8th, a no-name minor league pitcher (#98) loaded the bases and walked in the Nats' final run. Getting away from the stadium was a lot easier than getting in, but we stayed in our seats until the crowd had exited (about 15 minutes) and my wife brought our van up closer to the stadium to reduce my walking. Ramp was downhill too.

Today, it's a home game with the Tigers. St. Louis native, Max Scherzer, will start for the visitors. Jhonny Peralta hit 2 home runs in the away game against his former team, but Cards lost anyhow. (Keep reminding myself, it's only spring training.)
