MILWAUKEE — It's the sounds, of summer as baseball, and the Brewers, return to Miller Park - even if it's just the first full-squad workout since things shut down in mid-March.
"That's the part of the day I'm looking forward to is walking out onto the field and just doing some baseball stuff, and I think that's the time players are looking forward most to as well... It's gonna feel like, alright, it's just I'm getting ready for the major league season and that's it, that's what 100 percent of your focus is gonna be on," Brewers Manager Craig Counsell says.
The good news? No positive COVID tests from Wednesday's physicals. But in the shutdown? Some team members did have to deal with it.
"We will not have all 45 working out today... I'll say it this way, we have had COVID positives in recent weeks with players in the organization but we did not have any at intake. But we will not be at full strength today," Counsell says.
The good news, baseball is back in a way, at Miller Park.
