Providing Spring Training News, Exclusive Coverage And Interviews
Welcome to Boys of Spring and Sheridan’s Blog. The statements, views, and opinions reflected on this website are my own, and do not reflect the opinions of the Chicago Cubs or Major League Baseball. Spring training 2015 is the 11th year Boys of Spring offers Cubs fans a multi-media inside look at Chicago Cubs spring training. Tim Sheridan, a Cubs fanatic who also happens to be the spring training public address announcer at Sloan Park is your tour guide.
2015 will mark the 32nd consecutive year Tim welcomes Cubs fans to sunny Mesa from his P.A. mic, this season you will hear him at the brand new Cubs Park complex. Tim’s longevity behind the mic seems all the more remarkable given that he claims to be only 38 years old. Regardless of his age, Tim considers the six to eight weeks the Cubs spend in Mesa each February and March to be his spring break. Many spring breakers spend their time hanging out, soaking up rays and drinking beer. Not Tim, he’s hard at work for Cubs fans!
Ten years ago Tim created this website to give Cubs fans a first look at their “Boys of Spring” as they prepare for the regular season. Here at Sheridan’s Blog you will find unique photos, videos, and game rundowns, as well as reports and observations on your Cubs from Cubs Park. Sheridan’s Blog is also one of Tim’s creative outlets, so you may run into just about anything here ranging from music videos, to quotes by Bill James or Walter Sobchak, to a photo of one of Arizona’s brilliant sunsets.
Cubs spring training is a world unto itself and no one covers it better or more colorfully than Tim. So if you are stuck in the Midwest this winter and can’t make it to the Cactus League, stop by Sheridan’s Blog to cure that seasonal affective disorder with a dose of sun, fun, and Cubs baseball. This is going to a spring to remember with the Cubs opening up their brand new state-of-art Cubs Park in Mesa, so don’t miss a minute of the action!
