Acid Flashback Friday: Dunedin Stadium
Finally, it’s less than a week away from when pitchers and catchers report to camp. If you’re like me, you’re chomping at the bit for Spring Training to arrive so the 2010 season can finally begin. Some folks are even lucky enough to actually head down to Florida to take in some of the action.
Since Spring Training is just around the corner, this week for Acid Flashback Friday, we’ll take a look at a ballpark that has cemented itself deep within Blue Jays history: Dunedin Stadium.
For the past 20 years, Dunedin Stadium has been the home for the Blue Jays each and every spring, as well as the home field for the Jays Single A affiliate, the Dunedin Blue Jays.
I’ve never been there personally, but from what I’ve heard, it’s an amazing experience to watch a game there. In fact, Sports Illustrated named Dunedin Stadium as one of its top five ballparks to watch a Spring Training ballgame.
I can only imagine what it’s like to watch the Blue Jays there on a sunny Florida afternoon, with the palm trees swaying in the background. It’s a wonder that the players ever want to leave Florida and head north at the end of Spring Training for the cold, desolate place otherwise known as Canada in the month of April.
