Extra Bases

More live BP today

More live batting practice today at the Fort as the starters take the hill.

The groups:

Field 2: Josh Beckett, Boof Bonser, Junichi Tazawa

Field 3: Jon Lester, Michael Bowden, Fabio Castro, Casey Kelly

Field 4: John Lackey, Clay Buchholz, Gaby Hernandez, Ryan Weiland

Field 5: Tim Wakefield, Felix Doubront, Kris Johnson

The pitchers work behind a screen to guard against line drives. The hitters often look pretty weak because it’s only the first or second time they’ve seen good pitching since last season. The pitchers tell them what’s coming to make it a little easier.
