Fly on the Wall

Not a great day here in Mesa as far as the weather goes but the Cubs were able to complete practice this morning before the rain set in. The 10 day Mesa forecast looks great though!

I took video of the outfielders taking fly balls, nothing too exciting until towards the end of this video. At that point one of the groups was taking fly balls deep off the wall in center field, Tyler Colvin makes a very athletic effort crashing into the wall but can’t make the grab. Sam Fuld also makes a great play off the wall and holds on to the ball. A couple outfielders you may not recognize are non-roster invitees #68 Josh Kroeger and #15 Andres Torres…Jake Fox was working with the outfielders as he has been this spring. The video is about 5 minutes long, with added slow-mo’s of the Colvin effort and Fuld grab.
