After the Last Phillies Game-Dedication is Rewarded 

Since we left the Phillies game early, Basrball Ross and I stopped by the Carpenter Complex and I was rewarded.

I try to take at least one picture of every player and this year, because of my injury, I was missing quite a few. I was happy to catch up with five I had missed.

David Lough
 
Ryan Jackson
  
I think my favorite thing of the day was seeing Jeff Singer pitch. He seemed to have a smile on his face, as if he was just enjoying the game. He was fun to watch.

Scenes from Phillies Minor League Spring Training-March 9

It was another beautiful day here in Clearwater. After a cold and wet winter, this warm dry March is a wonderful change. 

The one thing that I’ve noticed that’s different from last year is that the atmosphere is lighter and more positive. You see the players with smiles on their faces and a little more bounce in their steps. It seems to be almost the opposite of last season, at least, so far.

Unless you’re someone who’s unnecessarily loquacious, there’s really not a lot that you can say about watching the endless drills of the first week of spring training. So my contribution will be a series of pictures depicting today’s activities.
