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…
–Mike

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
