Spring is here and Major League Baseball has wrapped up its so-called Grapefruit League in Florida. That’s where professional baseball players practice and play exhibition games for the upcoming season, which started this past weekend.

Sports photographer Anthony Causi has been shooting spring training for 15 years, mostly of the New York Mets and Yankees. His passion, drive and willingness to do anything to get a shot has put his images in newspapers and sports sites around the world. He has become close to the teams, giving him a personal, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most beloved sports in the world.

    sports are just some of a long list of WMD's (weapons of mass distraction) to keep the masses unaware of the dire consequences that are coming due to an unchecked,bloated, and criminal government!.

    i played when i was little but never liked watching it.

    anyone that says the game is not unbelievably boring to watch has no idea what they are talking about. half of those guys on the field could probably take naps and not miss anything.

    Love baseball. I used to go to major league games and shot photography for certain oplayers and the Angels.
    Up here there's just an Independent League and used to shoot for them but now just go to their games. If I can I'll go to the minor league games and try to get down to an A's or Giants game or head North for a game in Seattle.
    I love it. Oh and on a softball team. No more fast pitch for me but still play co-ed and mens A ball.

    My FAVORITE sport, bar none!! I went to several of the ANGELS Spring Training workouts and games in Tempe (I live in Mesa) and I have a 28 game plan at Chase Field, where the Diamondbacks play their home games and I will follow my ANGELS on MLB.TV all season

    My local team went to the American League last year and I do not like it one bit. Therefore I will cheer for my hometown team, the St. Louis Cardinals this year and also the Washington Nationals.

    I used to love baseball until they removed the salary caps. Now with large market teams like the Yankees controling the game the competition is just not there anymore.
  • xcide13 Louis S... 2013/04/05 04:28:46
    considering that the Yanks haven't been to the World Series in what, 4 years?
  • Louis S... xcide13 2013/04/05 23:19:13
    Louis Shipman
    Yeah but thier always in the race. Where as teams like the Royals the Brewers or the Twins can't afford the big name talent. Saw a story last wek where the Astros payroll this year is $25,000,000 which $1,000,000 less than the Yankees are paying A-Rod this year.
  • xcide13 Louis S... 2013/04/11 00:28:05
    Actually, it is 4 million less. And it is the Astros own fault. They went to the WS less than eight years ago. They mismanaged their talent and flushed their past 3 seasons down the toilet. I get your point that there are certain teams that just CAN'T make it...Tampa Bay-they are almost always in the hunt for the pennant, yet they can't even fill their stadium during the playoffs. However, Milwaukee had a very competitive team a couple years ago with Grienke and Fielder. You have to know how to manage your talent and build a farm league. KC has awesome talent...they just can't put it together for some reason. There are MANY teams who are not perrennial favorites, yet they make a run in the playoffs.

    The Astros did the same thing that the Marlins did a few years ago. They built a big talent base that they really couldn't afford for one season than after going to the series they had to trade off the big name talent to keep from going bankrupt.
  • xcide13 Louis S... 2013/04/13 05:47:25
    C'mon man! The 'Stros had built that team over the course of 7 years...it was NOTHING like the Marlins...and they sure as hell didn't build a BILLION dollar stadium just liquidate the ENTIRE team!

    How about umpire? (I do 75 or so games a year.) Best seat in the house! To those uninterested in baseball - you are not human to me.

    I had to give that up when I got sick and lost all the feeling in my feet. But I still teach the game along with Russ Ortiz to the boys on our Faith Christian School, high school team
  • BigFig#9 Chef Bu... 2013/04/05 01:48:15
    I really do try not to be a baseball bigot but I can't help it...other games do not have 10% of the mental aspect that baseball has. I played and enjoyed all the other sports but really, they are 1/2 hour situation comedies to baseball's Shakespeare, they are soda pop jingles to baseball's symphony, they are comic strips to baseball's Sistine Chapel ceiling...

    I prefer to be out and active than sitting in front of the tube or parked on a barstool, watching other people being active.

    Actually, I will watch a few games at home. I really enjoy attending games, but I haven't had the cash flow to attend a game for several years. I used to attend at least a couple of games each season of our local minor league team. I'll probably watch a good bit of the World Series.

    I hate baseball. Because the last time I played it, the man threw the ball and it hit me right in the nose, and it was broken.

    We will be going to a minor league game though. Major leagues are too expensive, parking is outrageous here and the concessions should be classified as theft.
