    Well, as Week One winds down and games have now started, Spring Training is in full swing. From the fans that gather around the complex, to the roster moves, it is clear that Opening Day is now right around the corner. These next three weeks are going to be critical for a couple reasons, first and foremost, to make a team. With competition this high and talent levels up and down the system higher than ever, just getting a uniform to wear is a privilege. Next is to use these weeks to get dialed in and prepared for day one. We want to win and do well from the get go, and mentally and physically preparing everyday is key to success.

    With games under way, from what I have seen the talent level of this spring training compared to past years, has increased.

    Well everyone, spring training is finally upon us!

    With only a few days to go, I sit back and critique myself. Did I prepare to my fullest ability? Did I out-work everyone else when there was nobody looking? Could I have done more?

    These are all questions that run through anybody that did prepare. There may be a sense of panic for the guys that didnít. Overall, there is a great excitement to get the ball rolling this year.


    With report date tomorrow, Iím looking forward to seeing all my past teammates, along with future ones. All will check in to the team hotel. (A side note to those who do not know, yes, they actually put the entire minor league group in the same ďTeam HotelĒ which always makes for some great late night card games!)

    Hey everybody, Seth Stohs turned me on to this site. I am going to try my hardest to make sure to get on and blog about the daily life of a Minor Leaguer playing in the Twins organization. I will write as much as possible, hopefully once a week.

    Iíd like to start off my introducing myself and giving you all a little background on me. Iím Dakota Watts. I was born and raised in Oroville, California, the son of Buddy and Brenda Watts, and I'm currently 24 years old.

    First, a little baseball background. As a child, I was extremely blessed. Starting at age 5, I was introduced to the game by my father. I was also fortunate enough to grow up in a 2-3 year time frame when there was about a dozen other families as passionate about the game as we were in our community. This made playing baseball super competitive.
