Live batting practice on main field

The Twins are going to be facing game pitching for the first time since last season in just over 24 hours. Facing off against the Minnesota Gophers, the Twins will look to kick off their Spring Training schedule with a victory. Helping both pitchers and hitters to gear up for the spring schedule, the Twins made sure to get a healthy amount of live batting practice in today.

Once again, Rhett Bollinger was able to capture all of the action in an absolute perfect artistic display:

Looking at swings as well as images of batting practice, it’s fair to say that the Twins are enjoying some beautiful days down in Fort Myers. Working on getting things clicking in batting practice should help Minnesota carry the offensive production throughout their March slate of games. It’s good to see Ricky Nolasco in a much healthier state coming into the 2015 season. After a down year in which he pitched most of the season with injuries, competing in Spring Training early shows some very positive results.
