Sitting in my seat next to first base with a hot dog in one hand and a bag of fresh-cooked popcorn in the other, the sounds of the season – baseball season – surround me. The umpire yelling out his calls. The crack of the bat. Fans cheering.
What do I love about baseball in the heart of River City? The smell of the freshly cooked food distributed throughout the crowd, listening to the announcer call out the game play-by-play and watching the sun set behind the grandstands.
In addition to these familiar sights and sounds of the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Suns welcomed two new members to their team this season: Cesar Roman, the athletic trainer, and Scott Smith, the strength and conditioning coach.
Don’t miss out on the action! Here’s a peek at what’s on deck for the hottest team in minor league baseball this season:
