A Trip to Remember: Panini America Recaps 2016 Spring Training Road Trip (Gallery)
PHOENIX — Bolstered by some of the brightest young stars in baseball, top West Coast group breakers and a sincere desire to acquire compelling content (autographs, memorabilia, photography, social media) that will drive Panini America baseball products all season long, the 2016 Panini Spring Training Road Trip successfully concluded Wednesday night. In three short years, the two-state, 10-day event has become an annual spring training tradition — and it seems to get better every year.
This year’s journey began early last week with a four-city stop in Florida before trekking across the country for a three-day stint in Arizona. Along the way, significant pieces of baseball’s future (including the likes of Kyle Schwarber, Corey Seager, Jonathan Gray, David Dahl, Ryan McMahon, Sean Manaea and more) showed up in force. They signed autographs (including many for the upcoming 2016 Flawless Baseball). They joined in on live group breaks. They posed for photography. They participated in interviews. In the process, they made the event a rousing success.
In the must-see gallery that follows, we offer a comprehensive recap of all the action from the Arizona leg of the 2016 Panini Spring Training Road Trip. Enjoy the gallery and stay tuned to The Knight’s Lance for continued coverage from the event.
