Scenes From Phillies Minor League Spring Training-March 28, 2016

It started out as a muggy afternoon and by the time the games were over, it was breezy and starting to sprinkle. I was kept busy by having the majority of my pitcher friends all pitching in the same game. There were two major leaguers, Carlos Ruiz and Charlie Morton on the other field. I was also lucky enough to meet two fans and the father of a player who loves the pictures of his son that Ross and I have posted. It’s things like that that make what we do so fun.

Here are the two major leaguers:

Scenes From Phillies Minor League Camp

One of the most difficult things about Spring Training is trying to see it all, especially in minor league camp. At times you will have drills going on on four different fields, pitchers throwing in 3 different bullpens, and hitting in the batting cages. (And that’s the stuff you can actually see, there’s also indoor weight rooms, batting cages and pitching areas.)

When you’re trying to get an idea of how everyone is doing, that leads to a lot of movement around the complex and sometimes, no matter how hard you try, you can’t see everyone in one day.

So I put together a series pictures to show what a typical day in the life of spring training is like.

 

Carlos Tocci
 
One of the biggest surprises has been Carlos Tocci. Tocci broke his hamate bone in winter ball but you would have never known it in BP. He was hitting with some power. It was great to see.

 

Art Charles
 
Art Charles takes a few swings.

 

Andrew Pullin
 
Andrew Pullin practiced bunting.

 

William Cuicas

William Cuicas grabbed a grounder.

 

Alexis Rivero
Reliever Alexis Rivero smiles after a successful turn on the mound.

 

Venn Biter

Venn Biter laid down a nice bunt. (Ball on left-edge of picture.)

 

Ranfi Casimiro
Ranfi Casimiro pantomimes a toss in a drill.

 

Cornelius Randolph

Cornelius Randolph takes a jog around the bases.

 

Cord Sandberg
 
  Cord Sandberg takes a turn at the plate.

Elniery Garcia
Finally, Elniery Garcia smiles as he tracks down a ball during a fielding drill.

Until the minor league games start, this is a snapshot of what camp is like. For the fan it means a lot of walking in circles, but there is no where else I’d rather be.
