And so it begins…
Good morning from Goodyear, where today is the official start of Spring Training. Pitchers and catchers report today but that’s largely ceremonial since many have been here for several days. What today does bring is physicals for the pitchers and catchers and an afternoon workout. I will have stuff throughout the day here and on MLB.com/Reds.com.
I just met Shin-Soo Choo and did an interview for a story that you’ll see later. Also seen thus far: Bronson Arroyo, Sam LeCure, Logan Ondrusek, Billy Hamilton, Manny Parra and Alfredo Simon.
In pictures from out here, you will notice some new caps. They have home and road Spring Training/batting practice hats this season. You may have seen them already but if not — check it out:
