It's been an hour and a half since the first workout of the spring season ended so I've had some time to digest everything. It seems a rare occasion when the practice on the floor runs as smooth as it does in your mind...and today was no exception. We always are very ambitious with what we want to accomplish in each practice but it never seems to work out quite right. God bless you if it does! Maybe you can send some wisdom this way.
Despite the fact everything didn't go exactly according to plan, there was a lot to build from after day one. We have a lot of experienced players returning that are always key, especially when you're a new coach in a program. One thing for sure is that it's great to be talking baseball again!
Special thanks to baseball ops intern David Johnson for taking the pics throughout the practice.
