|Greetings Fan Club Members,
Congratulations to Michelle Munoz for winning the Spring Training Writing Contest. She received a free, autographed 8x10 of Paul making another great catch in Right Field. Here is the text of her email:
"I don't recall what year I attended Spring Training with my parents. I can't recollect the score or the opposing team. I only remember the sunshine and the baseball. It was snowing when we left NJ, weather better suited for skiing than baseball. Stepping off that plane, however, I was transported to a magical world where the weather was warm, Derek Jeter was in within arms reach, much closer than at the Stadium, and the air was perfumed with hot dogs and leather. The first pitch of Spring Training inevitably evokes these childhood sensory memories."
