Mind if I'm a grumpy old guy for a minute?
What's up with all these spring training night games? OK, a bit of research. 2002 (Media Guide had four, count 'em four, pictures of Barry Bonds on the cover): two Cactus League Giants night games. 1992, 4 scheduled Cactus League night games (just a jersey on the cover). 1982? Media Guide has a 25th year logo on the cover, and there were -- hey, no spring training schedule in the Media Guide! Hmmm....1987 has the schedule, with a bland diamond and logo on the cover, and only one night game.
I wouldn't want anyone to put too much stock in my memory, but what I recall is that there was usually just a single night game in the 1970s. Anyway, I've lost track of how many there have been so far, but there's one right now and two more scheduled for next week.
I'm grumpy because I like listening to the games in the afternoon. Oh well. I suppose if it was the 1970s, I wouldn't be able to listen to "radio broadcasts" of spring training games from here in Texas. Let alone watch any of them on TV, wherever I was. So I shouldn't complain. But, you know, I am anyway. Sorry.
