Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine, in town to speak at an Alabama Baseball Coaches Association fundraiser, shared a tidbit about a former Biscuit.
Catcher Matt Spring will go to big league camp with Boston this year.
Also, Valentine said he was impressed with the city and Riverwalk Stadium.
"To see the Biscuits' beautiful Double-A field and the passion people have about baseball here -- and football -- is very exciting," Valentine said.
I asked him about the Rays, so check back later. It's on a tape and I have to transcribe it, after the dinner.
