Kicking things off

Hello fans, my name is Bradley Suttle, I am starting a blog this
year to keep you updated on our team and give you an inside look into a
Minor League Baseball player’s life.  Just to give you a little
background on me, I was drafted by the New York Yankees in the 4th
round of the 2007 MLB draft after spending two years at the University
of Texas in Austin.  Last year I had a great time playing 3rd base for
the Charleston Riverdogs in South Carolina.   

Right now players are starting to arrive to get ready for the
upcoming year.   I have already been in Tampa a month rehabbing my
shoulder that I had surgery on at the end of the 2008 season.  Our
practice time right now is a little less strenuous than spring training
will be.  We get to the field around 8:30 in the morning to get ready
for practice which starts at 10.  Right now we have individual
objectives to work on to improve our game.  During a practice, we
rotate through about 5 twenty minute stations and then we lift
weights.  Most of us finish our day between one and two o’clock in the

Everyone is enjoying their last few weekends off before we start
“the grind,” where as you know we will be playing baseball 7 days a
week for the next 7 months.  Some of the guys went to the Monster Truck
Jam at Raymond James Stadium this weekend.  I had a blast!  It is
pretty cool to see a 15 foot tall truck fly 30+ feet in the air and run
over RVs!

Until next time…



    Hey Bradley,

    Best of luck working the kinks out with the shoulder, hope all goes well. I covered the Riverdogs all season last year(the young, annoying, poorly-versed reporter), and it was a real pleasure getting to know you guys. Best of luck in ST and hope to see you up the ladder real soon.

    Best of luck to you in your career. Hope you move up the depth charts quickly! There is that little AROD obstacle at third base, but I’m you will ‘bull’ through the competition. Sorry for the corny joke. It is really cool that you are starting a blog!


    Good luck Bradley. With all the new people the Yankees Signed, all of the young prospects are gonna need it.
