Here’s some video. Griffey is first, then Adrian Beltre at the end. If the video doesn’t play right away, give it a few minutes and try again.
Also some reporters got the chance to talk to Mike Sweeney after the simulated game, in which Ken Griffey, Jr., Sweeney and Beltre got the equivalent of at least six at-bats in a real game by facing live pitching. After the session the three players signed autographs for the two minor-league pitchers they faced, Jake Wild (good name for a pitcher) and Travis Mortimore.
Sweeney is coming back from knee surgery. He said tomorrow is his “opening day” when he gets his first at-bats of the spring in a game.
“I’ve been chomping at the bit to get on the field,” Sweeney said. “My legs feel great. It feels special to be a part of this team.”
