Workouts started yesterday for the upcoming baseball season. We are using a new facility in the south-east industrial area of Calgary, it is called the Coyote Den. It is an old warehouse and is about 100′ wide and 150′ deep, I would guess anyway. There is a batting cage area, bullpens and a large infield. The roof is around 30′ high I would guess so we can do a lot of work inside to get ready.
Most of the new draftees were there yesterday. The talent pool looks pretty good, I am optimistic. I hit a crap-load of ground balls yesterday and am a little sore today. Using muscles that have been mostly dormant all winter… Today we are in the cages, I will be throwing some BP (batting practice) so there will be more sore muscles tomorrow. We are also using the bullpens to get players starting to pitch. It is still very early so we need to take it slow.
I am really looking forward to the upcoming season. Bring on spring.
