Unlike Stadiums up north, the stands in Florida are close to the infield and seats are within earshot of players chatting to their teammates. The weather is almost always PERFECT, the beer and hot dogs are affordable, and parking, tailgating, finding your seat, standing in line for food – is just a LOT more relaxed and….”laid-back”.
