The Philadelphia Phillies’ prized offseason pickup, left-hander Cliff Lee, mildly strained his left latissimus dorsi earlier this month. The reports of the injury surfaced after Lee threw just eight pitches during a recent bullpen session, according to the Associated Press.
Ahhh…February in Florida. I’m not quite sure how much better you can get in terms of weather. As the weather in Florida turns form comfortably cool to amazingly comfortable, pitchers have begun fielding ground balls and covering first. Pitchers Fielding Practice! It is one of the most boring drills to watch but in the same respect…It is an amazing sight to the eyes! Real baseball can’t be too far away! Pitchers fielding practice always yields to infield/outfield, batting practice and a slew of other spring necessary drills. Games arrive next week! Go Team!
As the cold weather up north begins to slowly creep towards bearable, the baseball world heads to Florida and Arizona to brush thew dust off. Fans from all over the country will gather in these small little towns that are empty 11 months of the year. It really is a magical time! The smell of the leather, the crack of the bat…It;s really has been a long winter! So I say…Welcome back tot he boys of Summer! March 31st can’t get here fast enough!
