The start of another spring
Greetings from Jupiter, where today was the official pitchers and catchers report date for the Cardinals. Many players arrived to town long before Wednesday and have been working out – informally – with one another. Thursday will mark the first official workout of spring.
I’ll be on the ground here for the next seven weeks, providing content for cardinals.com and giving you all hope of a coming spring. Similar to last year, this blog will be updated periodically – but not daily – as we instead move all the content to the Cardinals.com homepage. The hope is that by posting everything there, it will be easier for readers to navigate and find the day’s stories.
Once Grapefruit League play begins in March, I will post the game lineups in the blog.
On Cardinals.com, there will be stories posted throughout the day, so be sure to check the site regularly. Coverage won’t only come in the form of the written word, either. I will shoot video regularly, and I will continue the weekly podcasts I do with MLB.com’s Dave Raymond (you can subscribe here).
I’ll also be taking photos, which will be shared via Twitter (@LangoschMLB), Instagram (LangoschMLB) and Facebook (Jenifer Langosch for Cardinals.com). The Twitter and Facebook pages will be what I use most frequently to disseminate information, so if you want to ensure that you’re up-to-date with the latest news, those are must-follows.
And for the tablet readers among you, I will continue to run the Flipboard page (St. Louis Cardinals for MLB.com) that I started two years ago.
I hope you find the coverage to be thorough and enjoyable throughout the spring. If you have any suggestions or story ideas, feel free to submit those in the comments section below.
