Big Al here. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to do any peaching here on my blog. Things are really hoppin’ at my joint over at Capone’s Dinner & Show. Word is gettin’ out ‘bout my specials and prohibition ain’t gonna stop the nightly party at my speakeasy!
This is one of my favorite times of the year. Spring Training in Central Florida is when me and the mob are gonna get to use our bats for another game – not just for inspiration. Savvy?
If you’re an Astros or Braves cat, it’s easier to gun for a game in Central Florida. The Braves train jus’ up the road at Disney’s Wild World of Sports and the Astros are down the road the other direction from Capone’s at the Osceola County Stadium. Further to the east are the Nationals trainin’ in Viera. Further to the west are the Tigers in Lakeland; Yankees in Tampa; Phillies in Clearwater and Blue Jays in Dunedin. There are other teams doin’ their Spring Training in Central Florida if you want to check them out on this really keen web site at www.floridagrapefruitleague.com.
Spring Training in Central Florida Schedules & Ticket Prices
Spring Training in Central Florida starts March 1 this year and ends early in April. The teams play every day, so there is plenty of Chicago lightning. There are “away games” and “home games” so be sures to check your team’s schedule an’ show up at the correct stadium. Some days they even play a double header! That’s ‘bout as much action as watchin’ bangtails!
Individual game tickets range from $15 to $60 depending upon the stadium and where you want to sit. You can buy a multi-ticket plan and see more than one game. Those are the bees knees. Some of the stadiums and teams even offer a meal plan including hot dogs, popcorn, nachos, soft drinks and bottled water. Keep in mind, most stadiums also charge for parking – somethin’ we never do at my Kissimmee attraction.
After the Game, Join the Gang!
Speakin’ of meals, I know that afternoon baseball game snack ain’t gonna fill any of yous up, so that is why I want to personally invite yous to my Kissimmee dinner show. Every evening Mama Capone puts out a spread unlike any other dinner show in Orlando. This ain’t no hash house either, it’s an Italian/American buffet fit for a high pillow. All-you-can-eat dinner and drinks (giggle juice too) is hard to beat! Plus, if you order your tickets online, I’ll make it right and let yous glaum them at half off the ticket price! That ends up – with the government’s cabbage (tax) – being only $35.30 for adults and $22.46 kids 4-12. Add a little extra an’ be treated like a big boss with a VIP upgrade.
March Specials at Capone’s Dinner & Show
Now for some serious matters… It’s well-known that Buggs Moran has been tryin’ to take over my joint for quite some time. It bein’ March and all, those Irish are startin’ to come ’round. Things are a bit hinky. To encourage support for me an’ my gang, I’m gonna offer 2 shows per night during the week of St. Patrick’s Day – one early show at 5:00pm and a late show at 8:30pm on March 18th and March 20th. Experience a little friendly competition here at Capone’s Dinner & Show, especially durin’ the Gangster Shootout! You won’t want to miss the action as my gang puts all this spring training to use!
Enjoy Spring Training in Central Florida and be sure to stop by my speakeasy and tip a few. Everyone on your team will have a good time at Capone’s Dinner & Show!
