Drink With the Players
The players are on an early schedule throughout spring training. Most report to their facility for a workout or breakfast around 7:30. If they're not scheduled to play that day, they're out the door by 2 p.m. and on their way to the golf course – especially the pitchers. Due to the early wake-ups, you're more likely to rub elbows with ballplayers on the links than at the clubs. Though you might bump into Yogi Berra at LeRoy Selmon's, a sports bar near Steinbrenner Field in Tampa. Try IMG Academy Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. or Raven Golf Club at Verrado, Buckeye, Ariz. if you want to bump into some more modern stars.
