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

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:

I’ve never been a big fan of the moustachioed Mr. Redlegs logo. Does anyone ever talk about reverting to Mr. Reds? I really liked the look of the logo, similar to what was around in the 80’s and I believe the 1990 season.

Like so many of your readers, I’m so excited for this season to get started. Thanks for giving us even the little stuff like what the spring training caps look like. It’s greatly appreciated!

Don’t think much of the hats . I hope they don’t replace the wishbone C. That would be terrible

Finally, I can return to the sanctuary that is baseball. I’m looking forward to the Shin-Soo Choo story. I think he’ll be a good addition to our squad.
