Sliding drills


BRADENTON, Fla. — One of the most fun drills to watch is the sliding drills, which were held this afternoon on Field 4.

The players (the speedy ones, at least) enjoy it because they can flash their speed and ham it up a bit. Photographers like it because it makes for a great picture. The fans like it, too, as evidenced by the cluster of diehards who tried to sneek a peek from behind a screen on the outfield fence.
