Ptichers and catchers report today. The first official workouts are Wednesday -- spring training is starting early this year because of the World Baseball Classic -- but there have been unofficial workouts already, with reports of Byung Ho Park batting-practice heroics and robot lawmowers traversing the berm behind Hammond Stadium's left field wall:
Can confirm Byung Ho Park hasn't lost his power stroke. Four straight BP rockets off or over LF fence. pic.twitter.com/JzG43iXHUP— Phil Miller (@MillerStrib) February 13, 2017
Never seen this before: A grass-cutting "roomba" constantly cross-crossing the berm at Hammond Stadium. It's weirdly hypnotic. pic.twitter.com/LTPs5ijZzi— Phil Miller (@MillerStrib) February 13, 2017
One may be relevant to the 2017 Twins. Perhaps neither is. But man, I'm happy to have baseball back.
