TMJ4 has the behind-the-scenes video of the trucks being loaded — with some help from the racing sausages — and a quick interview with Rick Schlesinger about the ceremonial start of spring.
HAPPENING NOW: The Milwaukee Brewers are loading their team equipment truck for the spring training trip to Phoenix. Among the items are about 20,500 baseballs, 1,000 bats, 200 batting helmets, 160 official spring training jerseys, 20 cases of bubble gum and 60 cases of sunflower seeds.Posted by TODAY'S TMJ4 on Tuesday, February 5, 2019
The Brewers also posted their own pictures of the day:
Pitchers and catchers report to Brewers Fields of Phoenix And Definitely Not Maryvale and beat writers will upload videos of light throwing a week from Wednesday. The first full-squad workout is in two weeks, on Tuesday, February 19th.
