Twitter Talk – Spring Training Edition

Pitchers and catchers have officially reported for the reigning National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals in Jupiter, FL., as spring training is underway. The Birds have 19 non-roster invitees participating with the club, the same number of invites that were extended last spring.

To get the reaction of anxiousness and excitement from the players, we took to the world of social media, specifically Twitter. In this first edition of Twitter Talk, here are some pictures and thoughts from a few of the players preparing for and arriving in Florida.

Matt Carpenter told the Twitter world all he needed was a bat and a swimsuit for Spring Training.
