D-backs hit the field for first workout of spring

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — And … they’re off.

Thursday brought the first official day of workouts for Diamondbacks pitchers and catchers at Salt River Fields.

Wish you could have been here, but since many of you have other obligations, we’ll pass along a little flavor of the day.

By the way, 12 days from now they’ll take the field for an exhibition game vs. the Arizona Wildcats. And as long as you’re marking your calendars, Opening Day is a mere 46 days away. Hope to see you at the ballpark soon.
