Its Spring training time for Major League Baseball teams in Florida and Arizona. I am a huge baseball fan, and have been for years.

There was a lot of late season wheeling and dealing by teams making playoff runs, and there will be another flurry before long.

I find for me personally it doens't matter who plays on my team, I always expect them to win. The years that the inside analysts pick my team to finish dead last in the division I just shrug it off and say, "What the hell do they know"?

I love the Atlanta Braves, and have since I was 6 years old. I saw Hank Aaron hit the big one on TV and jumped up and down like we won the World Series.  If you never did see him hit the shot, then enjoy the posted video. I remember the glory days of the Braves in the late 80's through mid 90's when they won the division every year.

One thing was always the same in Atlanta for years and years and that was manager Bobby Cox. He was the man. Bobby retired last year and I will be watching this year more than ever to see what the new coaching direction will mean for my Braves.

I always root for the Yankees too, because if my braves get into the World Series I always want to play the best. Whether you love them or hate them, the New York Yankees are the best.
