One of the things that I will miss about the Astros Spring Training facility being in Kissimmee, Florida, is the proximity to Disney World, where the Atlanta Braves have their Spring Training complex. Kissimmee isn't the tourist attraction that Orlando is, but that is the beauty of it. I don't have to deal with the traffic regularly and the kids won't be bugging me to go to Disney World during the entire game. However, we're still close enough that when the Astros are playing an away game we have the opportunity to go to that game without having to travel two to three hours. Plus, the Braves facility is pretty nice and I would recommend it for any Spring Training goer.
On the Saturday Brooks and I were there, we go the opportunity to go to an Astros away game after we had spent all day at the backfields of Osceola County Stadium watching minor leaguers workout. It was easily one of the best days I have had down in Florida. While we were taking in a baseball game that the Braves eventually won, I decided to record some audio for yet another post here on TCB. Here's the outcome of that audio work.
