Whitecaps in Spring Training

Many alumni of the famed West Michigan Whitecaps are now in spring training with their current team. Some have spots all but wrapped up with their MLB team, other are fighting for a spot, and some are still on the rise through the system. It’s fun to watch the games and see guys in action that I’ve watched or maybe have met at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. Here’s some pics of some the former ‘Caps in training. We wish them all the best no matter where they might be.

Gonna go out on a limb and say Boesch breaks camp with the Tigers. Hehe. Had a lot of fun watching him last year. I look for more positivity.

That’s a fair bit of talent coming out of the Whitecaps. Very impressive!
This is a very simple game…

Like Kristen said, that’s impressive. I wish there was an affiliated minor league team near where I lived.



Jeff-I would love to see Boesch on Opening Day, but the Tigers have a ‘plethora’ of outfielders, so it will be a tough call.
Kristen & Ron-This is just the tip of the ‘Caps iceburg. They’re more players I would love to have had pics of.
Thanks for checking in…

Observing Baseball

I grew up a Yankee fan, I favor Pitchers whenever possible, I am a stathead, and my dream job is to be a GM for an MLB franchise. In the summer, I go to MLB games and catch baseballs. In the winter, I write about what teams are doing to get better or worse. I try to be positive and unbiased in my writing, but that isn't always possible when evaluating teams truthfully.
