Jerry and Betty VanderWal were vacationing in Lakeland, Florida during February and met up with Woody and Jan Avis, who spend their winters in Bowling Green, Florida. They spent a day watching the Detroit Tigers in spring baseball practice at Marchant Stadium, Lakeland, Florida.

“We enjoyed watching them in a casual atmosphere and also the interaction of a few with us fans,” said Betty. “Before we returned to snow covered Cedar Springs, we attended the baseball game against the Atlanta Braves. Tigers won!”

Thanks so much to Jerry and Betty for taking us with you to Florida!
