telling you stories of incredible intimacy, affordability and a renewed appreciation for everything that is baseball.
So what are you waiting for?
Joe’s annually updated Spring Training
guide, available at the Buy Joe's Guides page, isn’t about sitting on the back porch dreaming of going "next year" – it's about
planning to realize dreams NOW. What’s holding you back? Is it time? Sure, everybody has to work and support a family,

Tampa, Fort Myers or the Palm Beach area alone?
Is it money? Yes, you might have to get
on a plane, rent a car, book a hotel room – but Joe’s guides make that process so easy it’s scary. Ticket
prices? Can you sweat paying $10 to get in the joint? Parking? Joe’s guides provide tips on securing free street parking.
Worst case? It’s $5 to park.

Florida, that’s what!
Spring Training is a time for unsung players
to rise to the occasion to earn a spot on a Major League roster to get to "The Show." Division III and Independent
League castoffs, who at age 28 or 29, finally "catch" the eye of a General Manager.
Unlike the regular season, it's not unusual during Spring Training for players to move about along the same paths
as fans to get from point A to point B with no fences, ropes, security guards or other obstacles.
The fact of the matter is this: Spring Training is one of the few institutions that hasn’t changed in a world
where change – and speed – rule. It remains sports best kept secret – the ultimate fan-friendly adventure
that delivers incredible intimacy and affordability.

why planning a trip to Spring Training in the Sunshine State is so worthwhile. Realize your dreams today!
