The Cleveland Indians Spring Training season is well underway and every day is a whirl of activity in Goodyear, Arizona.
What many don't realize is that the entire Cleveland Indians organization is out here, meaning players, coaches and staff from all levels of MLB and MiLB are gearing up for the regular season.
There are about 200 players here, ranging from the major league Indians to the five minor league affiliates.
Those affiliates include:
- AAA Columbus Clippers
- AA Akron RubberDucks (Eastern League Champs!)
- High-A Lynchburg Hillcats
- Low-A Lake County Captains
- Short Season A Mahoning Valley Scrappers
Every day starts with warmups and stretching and moves to skills and practice. There are also workouts, meetings, video review, breakfast, lunch and... oh yeah, games.
For many, the days start before sunrise and last nearly until the sun sets.
