Baseball is in the air

It just doesn’t get any better then the threads of a champion that this guy is sewn with. With the Cincinnati Reds pitchers and catchers due into camp today; Jay Bruce reported to spring training early.

“You want to see the guys again,” Bruce said. “When it gets this close to Spring Training, you’re ready to go.”

“I’m here to make the team every year,” he said. “The way I look at, they’re just not going to give you a spot. I’m excited to be here and I’m really ready to go. It’s going to be an exciting year.”

“I’m glad to here because I’m tired of lifting weights and doing the same thing every day,” Bruce said.

Acts like this raise the bar and make everyone in the organization want to follow the same processes in order not to be shown up or look bad. At the age of just 21, he’s looking ready to assume the leadership role. Clearly he just can’t get enough baseball. He’s locked in and is property of the Cincinnati Reds from now until October. That’s a long season, but clearly Bruce is ready for it.
