Pitchers and Catchers reported early this week, while the rest of the major league squads all joined camp yesterday. Spring training is officially underway, with games to begin this coming weekend. Yay!
Now that the big dates have been met, its time to start looking at the small milestones. Like the opening season speech by the manager. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny, as did many managers in clubhouses in both Florida and Arizona outlined their goals for the upcoming season yesterday. This Rick Hummel piece goes to great lengths to give you a picture of what Matheny talked about with his players, and what he is thinking about as the season begins. Its a great snapshot of the first day in camp.
