The unique lifestyle of Toronto Blue Jays pitching prospect Daniel Norris has been extensively profiled heading into spring training, and for good reason.

Spring training isn't all about building up arm strength and working on fielding drills. It's also the time for tomfoolery.
This was on fully display at Blue Jays camp on Thursday when pitcher R.A. Dickey helped himself to Daniel Norris' retro van/home and took it for a spin -- on the infield.
The 21-year-old Norris, who was given a $2 million signing bonus from Toronto when he was...

R.A. Dickey is getting up to speed this spring.
Dickey made his exhibition debut Thursday, starting for the Toronto Blue Jays and giving up one unearned run in two innings during a 7-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
