Ghost Stadiums – Cocoa Expo Sports Complex, Cocoa, Florida

Ghost Stadiums – Cocoa Expo Sports Complex, Cocoa, Florida

Before I left for Afghanistan in mid-March, I drove across Florida from my home in Tampa to my parents’ home in Melbourne. Along the way, on Florida State Road 520, just outside of Cocoa, Florida, I saw the remains of what was once the home of the Florida State League’s Cocoa Astros, the spring home of the Houston Astros, and for a season, the spring home of the then-Florida Marlins.  Sadly, even at 55...

Wounded Vets meet the Washington Nationals in Viera

March 13, 2012
By

By the time you read this I should be on my way to exotic Afghanistan. But I thought this was a great video and I thought it was definitely worth sharing here. Hopefully I'll be able to post periodically during the season, but if not I think this video of wounded veterans working out with the Nationals at their spring complex in Viera, Florida (coincidentally, the town I grew up in) was a great...

Opening Day of Spring Training at Salt River Fields Stadium

Salt River 2012! 042

Opening day of Spring Training at Salt River Fields Stadium, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies drew a record crowd of 12,528 on Saturday. Because they share the same stadium in Scottsdale, Arizona as part of the Cactus League it was appropriate for the Dbacks and the Rockies to face each other on opening day. For a team that went from having the worst stats in the Cactus League out of Spring...

Spring Training: Braves vs Blue Jays, Dunedin, FL 3-24-2011

Even though I riffed on Spring Training in my last post, I'm still a baseball fan and can't resist the allure of sitting in the stands and seeing the game I love. So I ventured from my place in Tampa to Dunedin, Florida for my second attempt to see the Blue Jays warm up for the season. (My first attempt did not go well. I drove 45 minutes just to be told the game...

Seeing Strasburg and Paying the Price

Sorry I am a little late in writing this, but did you know The Battle of New Orleans took place two weeks after The War of 1812 ended? What do you mean, that was 200 years ago? Last Sunday on a gorgeous day in sunny Viera, Florida, I saw "The Next BIG Thing" Stephen Strasburg make his second spring start as the Nationals squared off against the St. Louis Cardinals. I was impressed as...

The Strasburg Era has begun

March 9, 2010
By

It seems like this day has taken forever to come. With all the hype at San Diego State, his performance at the Olympics in 2008, Steven Strasburg finally made his major league debut. Like every 21-year-old making his debut, there were definitely some jitters on the mound to be expected. Strasburg fell behind in the count 2-0 against the first two hitters he faced. Fortunately for him those hitters were Austin Jackson and Clete...

Jason Heyward is a Whole Lot of Awesome

As you might have noticed, we're typically a little slow to unfold from the winter-long hibernation here at Bus Leagues. This is our third spring, and the routine is almost always the same: finish the season strong, fade away to virtually nothing from October to February, start working out the kinks in March, and really start firing on all cylinders in April. Just like the players, we need a little bit of spring training...

The Buses have Returned to Florida

March 4, 2010
By

For those of us lucky enough to live in Florida, particularly in Central Florida, there is a certain buzz in the air come March. Not quite March Madness, but better than just a night out drinking green beer and praising the Irish Saint of Bacchanalia. I am talking of course about Spring Training. (Oh, sorry. Before I go any further let me introduce myself. I am Jordi Scrubbings of JordiScrubbings.com. You may have known...
