But how, oh how, will I be able to match up the guy wearing the green tunic with his username at Prospec... oh.

Love going down to the minor league complex. Jason is right in that you can walk right up to any of the players. Normally there are 2 afternoon minor league games going on at one time. Just hop back and forth on what team you want to see.
A number of years ago I was walking down to the field and Edgar came out of the major league batting area and I got to walk down the fields with him. He batted in both games that were going on and batted every inning to get in some extra work. He kept running back and forth between fields.

I agree with your suggestions - the access to the practice fields is what it's all about. Great for families too! We will be there 3/20-24. When are you there?

I'm making it an annual trek every year. The Salty seņorita is great after game as well. Rick Rizzs Shannon Drayer and Eric Wedge get together afterwards with ball players likes Catricala, N. Franklin, B. Ryan, interview and visit afterwards. The food and beers are reasonable and you get 1 on 1 time with practically anybody there. Last year Catricala had dinner with us for about 30 min!! All I did was ask him! Spoke with Rizzs for about an hour just talking baseball and life! It was truly a great experience.

Making my first visit this year, do the minor league games start before the regular Cactus League schedule, or would I just be watching practice (which I'll still prob do) if I come by the complex on the Wed or Thur before games really start?

Games normally start at 1:00 the same time the Cactus League games starts. Normally 2 games are going on at once. But batting, fielding and pitching drills start by 9:00 usually.
Bring your glove, easy to get a ball in the minor league complex.

marinermutt - I meant before as on the calendar. First major league game is 2/22 but I'll be in the area a couple days before, will the minor league games not start until the 22nd as well?

Minor league games don't start until almost mid March normally.

Wife and I will be there this year for the entire month, really looking forward to it. I wish the Montesary Bar just off the Padre's practice field was still open. What a great place! Watching baseball, girls volleyball, cooking burgers on the outdoor grill, cold beer, never wanted to leave !
