Ryan Howard Shines, Featherston Flies, Galvis Focuses as Spring Training Continues

He looks sharp and has obviously worked out in the off season.

Newcomer Taylor Featherston didn’t want to be outdone and he flew through the air.

At the end the day, they did something I never saw, they donned “slide pants” and practiced sliding on special tarps. It looked like a lot of fun.

After the Major Leaguers were done, the minor leaguers that have reported early took their turn.

And finally Tommy Joseph looked good and fully recovered from last year’s injuries.

  

It may have been a cold, breezy day, but it was a good day for baseball.
