Assuming my batteries all hold up, I should have all of prospect batting practice (or at least of the guys with power) and the entire game. Any of you guys heading down? The game will be on the radio, but will not be on television. With spring training officially over, you can check out all of the spring stats here. Read that there were some injuries from spring. I don’t know the sev...
