Day 4 of Spring Training 2016

It’s another beautiful day here in Baseball Land. The sun is shining, the grass is green, the orange and palm trees sway…oh wait, Irving Berlin wrote that for White Christmas, but it is fitting here today.The cold weather is gone and it’s a picture perfect day.

Pitchers had throwing from the mound and catchers are taking BP from the coaches.

The only out of the ordinary thing that happened was that David Buchanan took a line drive “come-backer” off of his shoulder.

The highlight of batting practice was watching Carlos Alonso. He returned to the field showing no ill-affects of last year’s season-ending injury. In fact, he hit two out of the park and missed a third by only a few inches.

That’s all from here in Clearwater, back at it again tomorrow!
