"We've also gone over to Ricky Proehl's place in Greensboro," Walter continued. "They have 80 yards of football turf so we've done a lot of ground ball work, some bunt defense, some pickoffs, some of the things we would normally do on an infield diamond, we've been doing over there."

"To be honest with you, our bottom line is footspeed. We want as many kids we can run fast as we can get.‘’
