Spring Training Miscellany: Position Player Reporting Day, Live BP, Catcher Shenanigans, More

Chicago Cubs

Today was an official reporting date for the Cubs, but for reasons both historical (“PITCHERS AND CATCHERS IS THE START OF SPRING TRAINING BABY!”) and pragmatic (so many dudes report early), nobody really says boo about “position players report day.” But that day was today.

Still, that means tomorrow is a pretty big day: it’s the first full-squad workout of Spring Training 2019. Let’s go and such.

Until then, some fun bits from this weekend around camp …

  • Pitchers got into some live batting practice today, which means we got this glorious linguistic match-up:

  • More BP:
