So that must be the Yankees' camp. I believe the Yankees stayed there for only a few more years, then moved to Fort Lauderdale. I've heard that black players more more welcome in Fort Lauderdale. Remember the old motto: in Florida, if you want to go north, go south.

Correct. Yanks moved in 1962, bought into a motel on A1A in Fort Laud..The Yankee Clipper. I used to hang out with my friends Bill Robinson and Ruben Amaro there. Black Cardinals were living in private homes until Bill White and Gibson shamed Busch to buy a motel near the Skyway The Mets had their players in the Colonial Inn out in St. Pete Beach. GV

My baseball-loving friends here love McKechnie Field in Bradenton, home of the Pirates and a minor league offspring. It was first built in 1923 (renovation 1993- I think) and has that old steel pillars look. Sarasota has the Reds in a nice layout. VHS, a perennial power is already swinging bats.

Now that I think about it, it was one of the visiting KC Royals in deep LF.

Classic wishful thinking, at a lethal level.
