Tomorrow is a day off for everyone in the big league camp. Next door at Carpenter Field, 170 minor leaguers will be taking their photos starting at 7:30 in the morning. Hope everyone is awake.

First batch of cuts in the big league camp were made today. Todd Zolecki will keep everyone abreast of the latest news in his Zo Zone blog. Check it day and night.
Mitch Williams will be here on Wednesday for an autograph signing at 10:35 a.m. inside the west gate. He’ll also be selling his “Wild Thing” salsa.
