Suitcase Chronicles: Now An Outsider
My feet guided me mindlessly in the familiar place. I rounded corners and wxplored with the ease one finds when returning to their childhood home. My jeans and light sweater shielded me from the slight morning chill—I've worn a similar outfit innumerable times as I walked the Arizona grounds during the early AM hours. As I approached the spring training complex, I felt I should go inside. I wanted to see my old locker. I wanted to touch the old weights of my workouts. I wanted to lie on the training room tables that supported my stretching. Yet I couldn't. They no longer belonged to me.
