Took him this past spring and it was a totally different story. Total circus. Players sprinted from field to field or snuck around to avoid the massive crowds. Players were still way more accessible than they are during the regular season, but guess that's what a World Series appearance will do for ya. Here's a vid I made of my family trip there:
Heading back out this spring and expect it to be a total madhouse. Especially w/ the legions of new Darvish fans and media on the scene. Heard we should expect Japanese paparazzi and hordes of fans to come out of the woodwork to catch a glimpse of him. Will be interesting to see.
If this is the cost of being good, I'll take that every time. Looking forward to another exciting season. Spring Training can't get here soon enough!
