We're here in Sararsota for the first day of spring training. The Orioles pitchers and catchers report today.
The Orioles' remodeled Ed Smith Stadium facility still has that fresh-coat-of-paint smell, and the new digs are pretty impressive. You definitely get the classic feel of Camden Yards walking around. There's nice leather seats in the lobby. Banners of the Orioles' who have had their numbers retired are hanging on the exterior of the facility here.
