First day is breeze, brrr

Postcard from Fort Lauderdale


February 16, 2007|By JEFF ZREBIEC

An excited bunch of Orioles filed out of the Fort Lauderdale Stadium clubhouse yesterday for the first workout of spring. They were greeted by about 20 fans ... and a nice, stiff wind. It was cold enough that several Orioles, including some who had trouble getting to Florida because of snow and ice on the East Coast, scurried back to the clubhouse to grab a sweat shirt or a jacket. "It's all relative," manager Sam Perlozzo said. "If I called up north right now and complained, I don't think I'd get any sympathy. What was it today, a blustery 60?"
