The LumberBlog from the Cactus League

Thumbnail image for CactusLeague.jpgCactus League play for the Seattle Mariners officially begins next Wednesday, March 3 as they take on the San Francisco Giants at the Peoria Sports Complex.  I will be there shooting photos as Don Wakamatsu’s club takes the field for the first time this Spring.

My trip won’t stop there.  I’ll also be heading to Scottsdale Stadium (Giants), Camelback Ranch in Glendale (White Sox), Goodyear Ballpark (Indians) and Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix (Brewers).  Here’s my day-by-day:

March 3 – San Francisco Giants @ Seattle Mariners (1:05 PM, Peoria)

March 4 – Milwaukee Brewers @ San Francisco Giants (1:05 PM, Scottsdale)

March 5 – San Diego Padres @ Seattle Mariners (1:05 PM, Peoria)

March 6 – Los Angeles Dodgers @ Chicago White Sox (1:05 PM, Glendale)

March 7 – Texas Rangers @ Cleveland Indians (1:05 PM, Goodyear)

March 8 – Seattle Mariners Split Squad @ Milwaukee Brewers (1:05 PM, Maryvale) 

I’ll also be sneaking in some NHL action at the arena on March 4.  I finally get to see my favorite hockey team in action, the Colorado Avalanche, as they take on the Phoenix Coyotes.  Maybe I’ll take some pictures of that as well.

I will attempt to post some updates from AZ, but if not, expect a bunch of stuff when I get back on March 10.



Have a great time in Phoenix! I’ll be down there during Spring Break myself!


Oh, you probably already know this, but if you get a chance, check out Gabriel Noriega in the minor league camp. I’ve a gut feeling that he’s going to have a breakout year and I think he’ll be playing in Clinton.
