Surprise! Spring Training is Back!
I know that many of you may think it's too early to begin thinking about Spring Training, but with January temps in Surprise, Arizona in the 70s, it's hard not to have spring fever. Shoot, today I laid in my backyard and got burnt (as did my Cincinnati Bengals in today's blowout against the Texans. Goodbye playoffs!). So, why not share some fun facts about Spring Training in Surprise, Arizona?
