Spring Training 2016 Begins

For the casual fan, the first day of pitchers and catchers isn’t the most exciting. They come out and spend about half an hour stretching then break into work groups and go to different fields with different coaches.

  
Then the coaches talk for about another twenty minutes (this is done somewhere on the field so fans can’t hear) and after that, they begin practicing. The first few days, they only pantomime throwing.

Watching drills (especially when you’ve been doing this 7+ years) can get a little boring so Baseball Ross and I walked over to Bright House to watch position players take batting practice.

On the half field next to the stadium, Darin Ruf, Freddy Galvis and Andres Blanco were doing infield drills:

 

Darin Ruf at first
  
Freddy Galvis at second
  
Andres Blanco at third
 
Once inside, we saw:

The weather was the best in recent memory. I can’t wait for tomorrow!
