You might wonder who came up with the idea of getting baseball teams to travel to warm climates in February, so their players can practice for six weeks to prepare for the real games that count. It’s like your employer paying you to take an extended vacation to a sunny locale. Brilliant! The IBI's DJ Sebastian shares how the Cactus League was started and takes us on a trip down memory lane with lots of good anecdotes from spring training's of the past.

An old axiom is that it’s not always wise to believe “conventional wisdom”. This is certainly accurate when applied to the 2013 edition of the Cleveland Indians. Starting with the hot-stove period over the seemingly endless winter, and throughout the spring, nearly all of the beat writers, baseball pundits, and sports radio personalities were lukewarm about the Tribe’s prospects for the upcoming season. DJ Sebastian wants fans to forget conventional wisdom and enjoy the ride with this team.
