Report Day for Pitchers and Catchers at Maryvale Baseball Park

Under sunny skies and temperatures in the upper 60s at Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix, Brewers pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training today.  This is a day that Brewers players, staff and fans have had circled on their calendars for some time and is the “ceremonial” start of the 2012 baseball season.

This day is a lot about administrative things more than on field work.  Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin, Manager Ron Roenicke and the rest of the coaching and baseball operations staffs met all morning to discuss camp operations.  While there was no formal workout scheduled, a number of players took part informal on field activities this morning.  Players came in to drop off equipment, organize their lockers and catch up with their teammates and staff.

Tomorrow, there are no formal workouts planned as players will undergo physicals.  Monday, regular on-field workouts will begin for pitchers and catchers and position players who reported to camp early will take part in voluntary activities on the field.  Position players report to camp on Friday.

Below are some photos from today’s activities at Maryvale Baseball Park.
