Who , besides Robbie Grossman himself, deserves credit for Grossman's improved defensive stats in the outfield, as well as improvement in the eye-test according to yours truly? My general recollection has been less wandering about in search of fly balls. If Jeff Pic...

I stumbled into a free ticket to the Red Sox game against the Pirates on Thursday. It was a makeup game and a guy seated near me also said he'd gotten his tickets free from someone. (He also insisted that Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City is new, so our conversation was not illumina...

Back Fields in Motion - March 24-27, 2017 After my most recent blog entry from Ft. Myers, my wife arrived to take part in the fun in the sun. Unsurprisingly, time spent at the keyboard diminished to near-zero until I got home. This post represents a condensed and abbreviated review of the rest of my stay in Florida.

All baseball and no beach makes Ash a dull boy, at least in certain people's ey...

Back Fields in Motion - March 23, 2017 Thursday morning in Fort Myers, I resolved to take some pictures for once. Arrival was a little after 9, in time again for calisthenics (shown, left). Either that, or the prospects were being put to work erecting a new fence.

Fellow TD moderator USAFChief arrived shortly after this, and we shared a great day soaking up all that Twins spring training offe...

Back Fields in Motion - March 22, 2017 Today the big league club was on the road, and I did not follow them, returning to my haunts at CenturyLink Sports Complex.

It was a bit of an abbreviated day on the back fields for me, as I didn't arrive until 11, and the players had already departed for their lunchtime break because the games were slated for noon. And then that noon start meant the gam...

Back Fields in Motion - March 21, 2017 Greetings from sunny Florida! I'm lucky enough to be in Ft Myers for a week during Spring Training.

Today I spent the day mainly on the back fields, watching the minor league prospects. Normally I call these reports Hammond Notes (I must have been under the impression everyone remembers Hammond Organs when I thunk up that one), but Hammond is strictly sp...

A few photos from Tuesday night's and Wednesday afternoon's games in Oakland.

Possibly one of the last photos taken of Miguel Sano before his trip to the 15-day DL. Notice the tear in his left trouser leg. Left hamstring injury next time up to bat... coincidence? I think no...

Quick report from Oakland: Sano trying to swipe at that one flyball "triple" by Burns in the second inning didn't look any prettier from a seat right behind the fair-foul pole than it must have from the normal camera view.

In fairness, the A's right fielder (I think it was still Coughlan) returned the favor almost identically, in the fifth as a favor to...
