Spring Training photos [Part 2]

As promised, here are a few more spring training photos from the same game, just taken with a real camera.

That's a shot of some of the Cardinals taking BP. The only player I know is Josh Phelps, there on the left.

Here's a better shot of the name.

That's Anthony Reyes warming up, and somebody playing baseball golf in the background.

There's Dave Duncan, watching Reyes warm up.

And there's Juan Gonzalez stepping into the box. Ramon Hernandez catches. I don't know who the umpire is, but I noticed that all the umpires looked quite young.

This ends our diversion to present day. We'll resume with 1988 Topps tomorrow.

I think #91 standing in the cage next to Josh Phelps in the top picture is Amaury Marti. He's a Cuban defector taken in the 16th round of the 2006 draft. He's a great athlete and can hit the ball a mile.....when he makes contact. He's got the tools, but it's a shame he didn't get instruction on using them until now because he's 29 or 33 (depending on who you ask).
