Good Pregame Lunch or Breakfast
If you want a good pregame lunch or breakfast close to Ed Smith Stadium, go to Gus's 12th Street Cafe. The omelet's are bigger than your head. If Gus has had any luck fishing, the grouper is fresh. The prices are reasonable. And the front door of the place is 100 yards from the home plate gate the Ed. If you're for something to do postgame, Siesta Key is place to go. The beach is best in Florida -- a long stretch of powdery white sand. Traffic can be heavy. Siesta is just south of the Ed. Take 41 and follow the signs. The sunsets are spectacular.

Get There Early, Buy Tickets and Enjoy The Band
The park is at a major intersection in town and gets real congested around game time. Get there early, buy your tickets and in the past there has been a band playing out front. No need to buy tickets in advance except for Red Sox or Yankees. - Joe Connor, Author of A Fanís Guide To The Ultimate Spring Training Experience, www.modernerabaseball.com 

Late Night Dining in Sarasota
If you need a late night snack or a full meal Munchies 420 Cafe in Sarasota is your best choice. It was featured on Travel channel's Man v Food and is open from 4:20 pm to 4:20 am. They offer eat-in, take-out, and late night delivery of fresh cooked food with huge portions. Website 

Arrive Early!
It took me about 30 minutes to find a parking spot at Ed Smith Stadium. As soon as you see people parking, find a spot. Free spots within walking distance are attainable. Some private places near the stadium were charging $20 to park. Insane! Arrive early for the $8 stadium parking.

Largest Bobblehead I?ve Ever Seen
At Ed Smith Stadium over by the first base picnic area there is a large The Bird statute. ďCute,Ē I thought. Until one of the stadium staff touched The Birdís head and it bobbled! Itís quite possibly the largest bobblehead Iíve ever seen.

Rotation holds key to O's Trade Deadline plans
The Orioles have enjoyed a nice stretch over the past five years of being still in the postseason picture at the non-waiver Trade Deadline, a club actively trying to add talent after years of fielding calls from clubs hoping to poach some of their better performers. They're once again hoping to be active shoppers in late July, part of the rush of postseason-hungry buyers and not left behind during the season's final months.
