Max Scherzer, voted the American League’s best pitcher in 2013, throws a 98 mph fastball and a nasty slider for Major League Baseball’s Washington Nationals. Adam Wainwright, a two-time World Series champion pitcher with the St. Louis Cardinals, features a curve ball that falls about a foot on its way to the plate.The two bona fide aces faced off a week ago in Viera, a typical Florida small town but for the fact that it’s home to Space Coast Stadium and thus by extension the Washington Nationals’ spring training operations.The game put Palm Coast baseball fans within 100 miles of a championship-caliber matchup, and for this author at least represented what living in Florida is all about.
