SARASOTA, Fla. - Mark Reynolds put on quite a display on one of the back fields this afternoon, hitting tape-measure home runs each time he stepped into the cage.
He launched a few balls to center field. He bounced a few more into the parking lot beyond the left field fence. And he lowered the temperature around the cage by five or six degrees each time he took another mighty swing.
We’re still learning about Reynolds, but we found out today that he owns Double-A manager Gary Kendall, who was throwing batting practice.
Adam Jones also hit a few bombs during the session.
Brendan Harris was the third hitter in the group, and while he couldn’t match the other two in power, he did hit one ball over the left field fence. It must have been contagious.
