BRADENTON, Fla. -- Florida is this mythical land of sunshine and oceans, beer gardens and food trucks, fish and ... more fish. It's also a land of baseball in spring, and that is just as beautiful a reason to visit Florida as munching on a grouper sandwich while watching the sun set over the Gulf Coast.

Obviously, our cause for a Florida trip had about 99.9 percent to do with the spring baseball and about 0.1 percent beer gardens and grouper.

Now, I'm not sure if Dustin DopirakMatt Gajtka or Dejan Kovacevic have had many cares about how much sun was involved in the equation. Sun doesn't really affect the game from the press box. Yeah, a center fielder may misjudge a ball or something, but it doesn't look a whole lot different from those seats.

For me, though, on the field, light conditions change the way I see the game a whole heck of a lot. Luckily, in the early year's light, there are some really nice opportunities to manipulate and abuse the light. Here are a few of my favorite examples of that.
