Phillies Minor League Pitchers Give Max Effort in Intra-Squad Game

Baseball Ross and I skipped this morning’s drills to focus on the intra-squad games in the afternoon. It was a “Chamber of Commerce” kind of day. High of 85, sun and a light breeze. You couldn’t have asked for a better day. 

One thing all of the pitchers have in common is giving maximum effort with every pitch. It’s time to shine and a great showing may just influence where you start the season. 

My friend Ranfi Casimiro did really well against Tommy Joseph and Ross captured it on video HERE

You can also see his max effort in his face in these pitches:

My other friend, Elniery Garcia, had a nice called strike three against Harold Martinez that you can see HERE.

Here are some pictures of Garcia:

As you can see, these guys are going all out, working to earn a spot on the rotation. Who won? Really, you can’t tell. No score is kept, innings sometimes have 4 or 5 outs instead of 3. What you can evaluate is how much they want that starting job, it’s written all over their faces.
