No spring training doesn’t mean no baseball for Cincinnati Reds starting pitcher Trevor Bauer.
The outspoken Reds right-hander is part of a group of big-leaguers planning to play a sandlot baseball game — and stream it to viewers — on Saturday.
Confirmed, this is happening. All content and live streams from this event will be distributed through <a href=”https://twitter.com/Watch_Momentum?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@Watch_Momentum</a> and my personal channels (<a href=”https://twitter.com/Twitter?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@Twitter</a>, <a href=”https://twitter.com/instagram?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@instagram</a>, <a href=”https://twitter.com/Facebook?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@Facebook</a>, and <a href=”https://twitter.com/YouTube?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw”>@YouTube</a>) No further announcements will be made so follow now or risk missing it entirely. 💪🏻💪🏻 <a href=”https://t.co/SLDldANomC”>https://t.co/SLDldANomC</a>
Right-hander David Carpenter, a 34-year-old in spring training with the Reds, floated the idea and it quickly picked up momentum.
Bauer extended the public invite to players in the majors or minors in Arizona.
Many players are staying near team facilities despite the full shutdown of those venues by Major League Baseball on Friday.
