Ye Olde Pitchers

In what’s becoming a ye olde spring training tradition, the pitching prospects that are in big league camp for the first time get to travel back in time (if only in their minds) and head out to the renaissance festival. Josh Collmenter, renaissance connoisseur, offered to be their guide. This year’s journeymen were; Trevor Bauer, Charles Brewer, Tyler Skaggs and Patrick Corbin.

Earlier in the morning, at the team meeting, Sir Collmenter introduced himself and informed the young rookies of their later excursion.

Good sports indeed!

Pitching Prospects Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer

Pitchers and Catchers practiced for the first time out at Salt River Fields today. It was the first time that pitching prospects Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer were on hand this year. We snapped this photo, which will appear in the D-backs 2012 Media guide. Normally we would set something up ahead of time, bring out some lights and take a great portrait, but this photo was requested last minute. So, we threw a flash on the old 5d Mark II, found a nice backdrop, shot in raw, did a few tweaks in photoshop and there you have it! What do you think?
More photographs from the rest of the day are available for viewing in the gallery on dbacks.com, check em out!
