If you’re a baseball fan like me, today is the day you’ve longed for since the fall. Opening Day of Major League Baseball is here, and that means the return of first pitches, green grass and the crack of the bat.

However, for those of us at Walt Disney World Resort it also means saying “See ya real soon” to the Atlanta Braves, who called ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex their home for the past month.

In honor of the national pastime returning to center stage, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories from this past spring training at Disney. The 18-game slate at Champion Stadium saw everything from a new power hitting duo with the Upton brothers, to a couple of characters you may recognize from “A Galaxy Far, Far Away.”

The Braves return to action tonight as they host the Philadelphia Phillies on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. Play ball!
