Watch: Rizzo, Schwarber, Baez, More Take BP at Sloan Park

I’m not gonna lie, it feels damn good to be back at Sloan Park watching the Cubs prepare for another season. Yesterday, I managed to catch Yu Darvish getting in his first workout as a member of the Cubs. Today, while pitchers and catchers got in their first “official” workout, I was hanging around taking in some of the guys hitting batting practice on Field 2.

Anthony Rizzo, Kyle Schwarber, Jason Heyward, Javy Baez, Ian Happ, and Albert Almora Jr. were all swinging away, and looking pretty good too. So now, I share that with you. Enjoy.

And as a bonus, here’s a short clip of Jon Lester as he practices throwing out Tommy Pham at first base. Clearly, he’s still got it.
