It was a beautiful but windy day today here in Clearwater. Ross and I started the day a little late and dropped into batting practice at Spectrum Field.
We managed to catch the last group batting. In this group were Mickey Moniak, Austin Listi and Mitch Walding.

I have video of Mickey Moniak HERE.
Then we went over to the carpenter complex and saw Jojo Romero pitching to Scott Kingery.
Shortly after we arrived, the Major League camp broke for the day so we waited until 1:30 for the minor league players who have reported early to come out. For me, this is my favorite part of spring training, I know a lot of these guys and it’s great to see my friends again.
Finally, we got to catch Jose Pujols bat. He hit one off the score board and hit a few more out of the park.
It was a good day, although a long one. Hope to be back at it tomorrow.
