With spring training underway interesting (and usually lighthearted) stories from various team camps have begun to surface, like this assistant trainer of the Cleveland Indians who lost a bet and something else in the process. Then there was Baltimore Orioles center fielder Adam Jones having some fun with Kevin Gausman over one of the pitcher’s superstitions. The Washington Nationals had an experience with an osprey flying overhead that dropped a fish on the field. And you can’t forget the Arizona Diamondbacks doing the Harlem Shake.
Often times you’ll hear tales of prodigious batting practice home runs. This blast by Michael Morse at Seattle Mariners camp is a perfect example. While at spring training it’s always a good idea to park a safe distance away from where flying baseballs may land. This might happen if you don’t.
