Spring Training Baseball

baseballIt’s the best time of year in Arizona-baseball Spring Training time! Camelback Ranch in Glendale is the spring training home of two of baseball’s most storied franchises, the Chicago White Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers. They have enjoyed record-setting attendance and national recognition since its inaugural Cactus League season in 2009.

The 141-acre sun-kissed baseball center of award-winning architecture is wrapped around a five-acre lake on the Glendale-Phoenix border in the West Valley of metropolitan Phoenix. The lake separates the Dodgers and White Sox training facilities and offers aesthetic beauty and irrigation to complex landscaping and playing fields. The stadium has 10,000-plus seats plus seating for 3,000 on the bermed grass area. There are also 8 full suites, 4 mini-suites, a press box, a suite-level party deck, and a series of outfield terraces that create party areas.

When it’s not spring training season, the stadium is used for league rookie baseball, amateur baseball tournaments, corporate hospitality, concerts, festivals and other community events.

Tips for Making Your Home Look Bigger

white kitchenTo get your house ready for its first showing, expand the appearance of your smaller rooms with these tips. Here are some of my favorite low-cost tips and tricks you can use to make your home look bigger.

Declutter
Start clearing the clutter by boxing up everything you don’t need. This is not just limited to items on the kitchen counter, clear all unnecessary items from all rooms.

Rearrange
If you’re trying to figure out how to make your home look bigger, start by rearranging your furniture. Sometime it can be hard imagining your furniture placed differently, so ask a neighbor or friend to come over and give you a pair of “fresh eyes” to help.

Mirrors
Mirrors are one of the most common ways to make a small room look bigger. By strategically placing mirrors throughout a room, they can do a great job of making the space appear bigger while also doubling the amount of light in a room through reflection.

Paint Color
If your home is painted in dark shades, it can make the rooms appear smaller. Painting all of the interior one light-colored paint, however, can not only make a room feel larger and airier, but the entire home.
