Enjoy The Unspoiled Local Beaches
Catch sunset at Caspersen Beach, Venice Beach or Nokomis Beach (across the county line in Sarasota County) for seclusion, peace and tranquility. Not a lot of condo commando’s feeling like Miami or Daytona. - Joe Connor, Author of A Fan’s Guide To The Ultimate Spring Training Experience, www.modernerabaseball.com 

Baseball From the Boardwalk
The Baseball Boardwalk is the highlight of the renovated park in Port Charlotte. Its wooden planks span the outfield and fill up with fans before the game begins. So get there early if you want to have a good spot to view the game from. Also, the tiki hut on the boardwalk is a full service bar that stays open until 90 minutes after the game ends.

Dine Like a Ray During Spring Training
Joe Cracker Sportsgrille Ė Conveniently located across from the Port Charlotte Town Center Mall, this restaurant offers a trolley service on game day so fans donít need to deal with parking. Although a casual hangout, entrees demonstrate creativity and flavor. (1020 El Jobean Rd., Port Charlotte; Tel: 941-258-3444)

When he returns to the dugout after his turn at the plate, cameras have been eager to show Smith jotting notes down for himself in a personal journal.
