GROUNDHOG DAY

I can't believe how fast the days have been going so far this Spring Training. It is already March 11, and before you know it the regular season will be starting. Since I have been out here I've done pretty much the same thing everyday. Baseball is definitely a game of routines and repetition. I believe tomorrow will be my 24th straight day of practice since I have been out here. Our only off day is March 18th, something I am really looking forward to. Getting up around 6:30 for 24 straight days can get tiring, especially when your job is out in the sun everyday. I have been getting home from baseball around 6:00 PM every night and by the time I'm done eating dinner I pretty much go right to bed and wake up the next morning to do it all over again. Below is some footage of myself the last few mornings waking up at six.

  1. Keep it up, Matt! I know it's gotta be tough, but some part of you has to be amazed every day you get to live out every little boy's dream, and play ball for a living!

    My dad and brother get up at 5am and work till 8:30pm, working as mechanics. It's dirty, tough, and miserable. But its an honorable living, you know?

    Good luck, brother. Always look on the bright side.
