Not unusual for guys to come into camp overweight, and use the entire training camp for getting back into ballplaying shape.
That is precisely the reason. They used to wear those "rubber tops" that were an ugly greyish green color under the jerseys. A lot of wrestlers wore those things to lose weight when I was in High School.
The windbreakers did look kinda cool on the baseball cards.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
