JUPITER, Fla. (Feb. 26, 2007) - Brian Buckley keeps a basket of baseballs and a few Sharpies behind the desk at Abacoa Golf Club.
It may not be the usual run of supplies for an assistant head golf pro. But it comes in handy when a Chris Carpenter or Jim Edmonds saunters in.
\"If you work here, you can get an autograph from pretty much every baseball player in camp,\" Buckley said. \"I hand the signed balls out as prizes for the Junior Golf program.\"
It doesn\'t take a genius to figure out that Abacoa\'s clubhouse is a good place to spot Major League Baseball players during Spring Training. The defending champion St. Louis Cardinals practice and play their spring games in the Abacoa sports complex; so do the Florida Marlins.
And this is far from the only south Florida golf spot to double as a ballplayer hang come spring. Baseball and golf are closely linked in these days before the games start counting.
