Unusual early session
Looks like the Reds had a mandatory early workout. There was the usual extra hitting and the like. But this was no typical early session.
They took fielding practice. Bucky Dent hit fungos into the gaps and corners, outfielders ran them and hit the cut-off guy. You usually only see that kind of stuff in spring training.
After the club took infield -- again a regular season rarity -- Jerry Narron called them all in. He talked to them for about five minutes around the pitcher's mound. Bucky Dent also spoke, as did David Weathers.
Desperate times, desperate measures and all that.
We'll see how much good it did starting at 7:10.
