Just another walk in the (ball)park

Spending the day at the Twins’ spring training complex, for me, involves spending a good bit of the morning on the minor league complex. I enjoy watching the coaches put the younger players through their drills and give a bit of instruction along the way. I thought this would be a good time to share a couple of pictures from my Sunday morning.

Twins pitching prospect David Bromberg gets some instruction.

Terry Ryan discusses the "Twins way" with prospect Ramon Santana... who tucked his jersey back in his pants.

Twins teen aged Dominican prospect Miguel Angel Sano gets in some work at 3B.

On the way back over to the Hammond Stadium, this familiar face was spotted on Field 5 (next to the stadium).

Joe Nathan signs autograph after a workout on the day he and the team announced he'll undergo TJ surgery.

Finally, a few shots taken during the Sunday afternoon game with the Rays. (No story today… nothing I could come up with would top the “story” of Joe Mauer signing a contract that will keep him a Twin for the next 9 years!)

Orlando Hudson turns a base hit in to an out vs. the Rays.

1B coach Jerry White congratulates Joe Mauer on his single vs. the Rays... or was it on the new contract?

Michael Cuddyer is congratulated by Thome and Morneau following his HR vs the Rays.

  1. I really get the shivers seeing that picture of Terry Ryan working his magic on a young player…
