Play Ball!

Spring training has started here in Arizona.
Fifteen (15!!) major league teams in the Phoenix area, including the LA Dodgers 
(sorry, Vero Beach). 
E. and I have our own version of spring training. 
Shado
Shado and Sophie find ANY unused portion of the back/side yard for their own version of "play ball".

Sophie (with a touch of Toby as umpire)
We will gladly accept any offers from teams needing outfielders. 
I guess they best play in the American League - neither can hit worth a darn. 

But they love to hear the magic words:
PLAY BALL!!

Such fun! Our backyard is still deep in snow. Wonder how the big leagues would manage in that? Or Shado and Sophie?

Kisses,

Good action shots! It's that time of year, tho' doesn't feel like it here (3 new inches of snow last night). If Florida and AZ have baseball in February and I'm not there to see it, how do I know it's real?

Sign 'em up! They can't be any worse than our Dbacks were last year.

The Atlanta Braves could sure use all the help they can get. Your canines would fit right in. The braves are mostly a bunch of dogs anyhow. Ooooppssss I didn't mean to ofend your beautiful dogs, might I beg their pardon. LOL
