Cubs Spring Training
Providing Spring Training News, Exclusive Coverage And Interviews
Welcome to Boys of Spring and Sheridan’s Blog. Spring training 2013 is the 9th 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 Cubs spring training public address announcer at Hohokam Stadium is your tour guide.
This spring will mark the 30th consecutive year Tim welcomes Cubs fans to sunny Mesa from his P.A. mic at Hohokam. 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!
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 both Fitch Park and Hohokam Stadium. 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. Don’t forget to follow Tim on Twitter or Facebook to get the latest first hand info on the Cubs this spring!
