  • Twins Daily Spring Training: Advanced Scouting

    So the Twins Daily official Spring Training coverage begins next week when John Bonnes touches down in Fort Myers. However, last week I had the privilege -- nay -- honor of getting a tour of Hammond Stadium’s updates with my family.

    While in Florida for my -- ahem -- nuptials (sorry ladies), we made a pit stop at the Twins’ spring training facilities and were treated to a walk-through of the activities, which included the catchers’ drills on the backfield. Thanks to our photographer (and my cousin) Will Sandstad, we came away with some wonderful action shots of the practice session.

    For more thoughts and reactions on the drills and the new additions to the stadium, please listen to the podcast below (warning: some adult language).

      Congrats on your wedding, Parker and may you and your bride enjoy a long and happy marriage (and blessings to her for sharing part of your honeymoon with the Twins so you could share it with us).

      Somehow it still seems like there should be someone much taller in gear in that catcher's photo. While I think Mauer's full-time move to first is the right thing, it is going to take some getting used to!

      Thanks JB! I think by posting this, I can write-off the entire cost of the wedding. ;-)

      Yes, one of the most noticeable things was Mauer's absence. It definitely stood out.

      On baseball: Thanks for posting this. Antony a couple days ago said something like "some people in the Twins' organization thought that Pinto checked in a few pounds too heavy". Just looking at this, and knowing what Pinto looks like for the last 3-4 STs, I can call major BS...
