Chili’s Here, But It’s Not Chilly

While Chicago is being pounded with a winter storm, many of the North Side Nine are already here in Mesa working out. Pitchers and catchers are scheduled to report next week on February 14th, but with temperatures in the high 70’s and abundant sunshine we had ideal conditions at Sloan Park yesterday. Our man John Antonoff was there and took some photos.

Be safe on the roads if you’re up in Chicago territory!
