VIERA, Fla. - I’ve got one quick final note to pass along from today, since I shared quotes from Matt Williams yesterday about how detail-oriented he can tend to be.
A couple of hours ago, well after today’s workout had ended and players had gone home, Williams and new third base coach Bobby Henley emerged from the Nationals clubhouse and made their way up to the corner of the home dugout nearest home plate.
Henley then trotted out to the third base coach’s box, and he and Williams practiced giving and receiving signs. In an empty minor league stadium. On Feb. 16.
Why they couldn’t have practiced these signs while sitting across a table from each other or next to each other on a sofa, I have no idea. But I found it pretty interesting, and plan to ask Williams tomorrow why the heck he wanted to do that on the field.
Here is your photo gallery from today’s workout. Be sure to view and enjoy all the photos, because it took me about 45 minutes to edit all these things and place them in the entry.
