2008 Baseball Spring Blog - 3/11/08

I-95 - We are somewhere on I-95 on the road to Jupiter, Fla. to watch the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Baltimore Orioles in Spring Training. Five days into the trip for the Penn baseball team and we have our first off day - one that allows the Quakers to relax and regroup as focus turns to the final four games of the trip. The Red and Blue had a tough game yesterday and some time off from playing may be just what is needed.

The guys did get a workout in early today, gathering fora lifting session down the street from the hotel. Thanks go out to the people at Bally's Total Fitness for allowing 28 frustrated baseball players to take out their aggression on the free weights at their gym today.

Penn is also off from games tomorrow, but will be back on the field at night for practice. The coaching staff wants the team to acclimate themselves to the evening conditions at the park and get a feel for the wya the ball comes off the bat at night.

We just arrived at the park, so I am off. Have a good day!
