Sorry it has been so long since my last post. Games have started, so we are at the field for a while longer. Also, we have been having meetings almost everynight. So I have been exhausted and coming home and going to sleep really early.
The name of this post is from a comment from one of my fellow teammates today. He said to me that today was “hump day.” Having no clue what he was talking about, I asked him what he meant. He explained simply that today was the day that you have to get over the hump. Where you have finally hit a little bit of a wall, and there are only a couple weeks left of camp. So get past today and its all downhill til camp breaks. I really liked his point and his reasoning, so I decided to share it with you.
As for spring training, we are into our second week of games. I have thrown once, 3 innings against the Blue Jays. I throw again tomorrow, this time it should be 4 innings, and it is against the Blue Jays again. One of the big things that I can say about camp this year is that there is definitely an aura of competition in the air. Everything is upbeat, and there are alot of things being accomplished everyday. I am really excited about the productivity so far this year. I think its going to be a surprising year. Only my opinion though. It is absolutely a different atmosphere this year.
Thats it for now, but if you guys have any questions about spring training feel free to ask.
