While I tried to convert my husband into a foodie when I first met him, his goal was to convert me into a baseball fan. His mission was far more successful than mine. He has always loved baseball, and in AZ we have access to live baseball almost year round. We host the AZ Fall League for top MLB prospects, Cactus League Spring Training and of course my beloved D-Backs. Tom is a fan of several teams, but has been a Yankees fan since he was a little kid. There was no MLB team in AZ until 1998, so he chose the Yankees as his favorite because he loved Don Mattingly. I grew up in Western PA so I still have a soft spot for the Pirates, but I have really turned into a pretty big D-Backs fan.
Here I am with my favorite player, Ryan Roberts.
I had the opportunity to meet him a couple of seasons ago at a fan event.
We also went to all of the All Star activities last year, including the game and the home run derby, it was so incredibly cool.
I am sporting my awesome Kent Tekulve Pirates T-shirt, but I am also wearing my D-Backs necklace. I told you I really like baseball!
Do you have a favorite sport or team?
