Fans were sent hurrying from their seats at Goodyear Ballpark by what turned out to be a false alarm with one out in the top of the eighth inning of a spring training game between the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Indians.
The game Wednesday was delayed 5 minutes.
An automatic alarm beeped loudly throughout the ballpark in the top of the eighth Wednesday. The Indians stopped warmups...
Installment number two of our Prospect Depth Chart series focuses on the infield corners: first baseman and third baseman. Many of these players are interchangeable at these positions now, but it's safe to say that most could end up on the right side of the diamond. Still some quality bats and a couple of steady gloves in the group.
Canada is back in the 2013 tournament, sans-Jason Bay, and their uniforms were upgraded to the new BP design:
I like their red uniform. A o lot of teams just reversed the color scheme of the white uniform. I’m glad Canada did Red/Black, it looks good!
