Well we are almost a full month into spring training and the excitement is still building down here in Orlando, FL. We are definitely looking forward to a big season from not only the big league club, but our minor league affiliates as well. With the signing of big names like Garrett Anderson and Tom Glavine, the Braves are poised to get back into the playoffs & it’s pretty cool to be a part of it.
On the minor league front, the second wave of guys rolled in a couple days ago. It’s nice seeing some new faces after two weeks with the same guys. It was like Groundhog Day down here for a while! Everyone is ready to get this season started already, but we are having to remind ourselves that we still have almost another month before that can happen.
Most of us have had the opportunity to go to the big league side and backup in a couple games already and I have to say that it’s an experience. Every chance we get to go over there is a huge blessing and opportunity to be around those guys and learn as much as possible.
Mini camp was a good time, but it’s nice to see some live action again. We sent a lot of guys to the WBC, so I want to wish them all good luck. Minor league games start soon so these posts will definitely be more exciting as the season progresses. That being said we have a couple guys, myself included, going through the process of learning new positions. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on how that goes.
In the mean time feel free to ask any questions. I’ll get to as many as possible. Thanks for reading and Go Braves
