Welcome to Surprise, AZ, the sixth fastest growing city in Arizona. It's is located 20 miles northwest of Phoenix and about four hours and 49 minutes away from Vegas... but who's counting. Surprise is the spring training home of the Kansas City Royals, as well as the home of one of KC's four rookie teams, the AZL Royals. My name is Brennon Martin and I was a 4-year starting pitcher for the U of M who was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to play the sport that I love at its highest level.
It's practice day at the Conference USA Tournament in Houston, Memphis was at Cougar Field from 12:30-1:30 this afternoon. Pretty good workout for the team in the heat and humidity. Doesn't seem like our two 11am games will be that bad, but the 3:00 game on Thursday with Marshall will be really hot and humid.
Well, we wrapped up our first season at FedExPark last night with a win over Murray State. It was a really nice year in the inaugural season at the newly renovated facility. Again, a big thanks to FedEx for the gift. A lot of what was done could not be seen by the general public, but it was really nice for the players to be able to go directly from their dugout to the locker-room and the team was able to train on site in the new turf room.
