Cubs Practice: Keep Them Salty

Share Button

Saturday’s Cactus League split squad openers happened without incident, as everyone got their work in and generally stayed healthy.  While some of the results weren’t what one would call “productive,” it was still nice to see the ball come off the bat with a nice sound, especially for Jason Heyward.
