Aaah…The Minor Leagues
In the middle of our first road trip, I’m realizing that triple-A – although it’s just one step away from the big leagues – is still very much the minor leagues. †Let’s just say this trip to Tacoma brought back lots of memories from last season while I was still playing in the California leagues. †The bus broke down on the way to the field yesterday! †As if it wasn’t going to be an experience in the first place – after all, we had two players standing in the aisle and another up front by the driver – our twenty passenger bus became covered in a cloud of smoke on the I-5 forcing us to pull over. †We sat in the shoulder for about thirty minutes before help arrived in the form of our strength coach’s rented Toyota mini-van which began shuttling players to the field from the site. †It was quite an experience. †Hopefully today the trip to the field will go a little bit better.
