Hey guys, here are some links to some photos that I took while on my trip to Arizona this past weekend. After hiking 2700 foot Camelbak mountain, I saw the White Sox Split squad beat the Rockies 12-4 on St. Pattys day at a great new facility...Salt River Field at Talking Stick. That night we saw Flogging Molly play a great St. Patricks day concert...talk about wiped out!:

Friday, we went to Camelbak Ranch and saw the Sox beat up on the A's 18-1. Here are some pics from that win:

After hiking Piestewa peak we took in the A's/White Sox again at Phoenix Municipal (old stadium):

Salt River Field looks pretty nice.

Got back last night from AZ. I went to the Salt River Fields game and a got the chance to go on a behind the scenes tour with the Rockies clubhouse guy. It shows that the Spring Training facilities "arms race" is still on. I can't imagine that the clubhouse, weight room, meeting room, even the lobby is much better in any major league stadium. It was designed by the same firm that did Glendale, but it looks like they kicked it up a notch. You go from there to Phoenix Municipal (that looks like it was built for the 1960 Seattle World's Fair) and you realize how far things have come
