First Pitch: Notes From Day Two of Mini-Camp

Today was the second day of mini-camp, and it was pretty much identical to day one. If you’ve ever been to minor league Spring Training over at Pirate City, then you’d know the routines.

At the start of the off-season, I decided to only do First Pitch on Monday-Thursday, unless there’s big news over the weekend. There just aren’t enough off-season topics to do one every night.
