If you haven't had the chance to visit the Angels in Tempe Arizona for spring training do yourself a favor and make the trip.

There is no greater opportunity to get up close with your favorite players than at spring training. The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. If you are an autograph or photo seeker this is the place for you.

Spring training is also the only time fans get the chance to see future Angels in the same place at the same time before the players are sent out to various cities across the country.

If you've only heard of Nick Adenhart or Brandon Wood, this is the place to see them. Since the regulars typically play just a few innings the minor leaguers get a lot of time on the field. While attending a game last March I was able to see Wood at SS, Kendrick at 2B, Morales at 1B and Adenhart on the mound, was that a possible preview of the 2009 Angels?

Adjacent to Tempe Diablo Stadium is the practice facilities. Many fans congregate outside the fences to snap pictures and watch the Angels take infield drills and batting practice. Watching Mike Scioscia give a catchers clinic to his core of backstops Jeff Mathis, Mike Napoli, Jose Molina and Bobby Wilson is a treat.

A word of warning though. Once you attend Angels spring training you'll become hooked. If you are going to be in Tempe March 9 - 11th keep an eye out for the AngelsWin.com contingent of fans in attendance and introduce yourself.
Love to hear what you think!
