Day 5: Red Sox/Thanksgiving

Baseball Blog | Nov 24, 2011 - Posted by Ralph R. Zobell at 8:47 pm | Updated: November 24, 2011 9:20 pm | Permalink

We got on the bus at 8:00 a.m., and drove for about 40 minutes to the DR Red Sox complex. They have nice facilities with a couple of fields and dormitories for the players. Today felt like the hottest day so far that we've had since being here. We aren't quite sure what the temp was, but it had to be in the 90s at least. Coupled with the humidity, the players were drenched in sweat within minutes. Hot day, but a great one because we won, 16-2. Lots of guys were able to contribute with runs and hits.

There's never a dull moment in the DR. At least there hasn't been for us. It was another busy day full of great activities.  We started out the day at 8:00 a.m., as we headed to the DR Rangers' compound for BP.  They had two nice fields as well as dormitories and training/weight rooms. The Marlins' facilities were also right next door.
