2019 Spring/Summer Season Spring Training Opens

March 23, 2019 (Federal League Wire Service)

              Spring Training officially began for all eight league teams on Saturday and all of the clubs held their first workouts.
              The defending league champion Tri-Cities Tritons introduced their newest players, left handed pitcher Harry Del Valle and outfielder Ruben Castellanos, both most of the team's established stars, including playoff MVP Calvin Rayburn and all-stars Zac Miller and Mike LaManna were absent. Tritons' manager Mike Whittaker also did not make an on field appearance.
              After falling short in last season's Championship Final Series, the Sunrise Sunsets debuted newcomer shortstop Luis Diaz and conducted a spirited workout. 
              Manager Brandon Hull put the team, including returnees, such as George Negron, through their paces. Notably absent was all-star outfielder Chris Price, who is still nursing a leg injury sustained during the playoffs.
              The Margate Sentries signed one of their two draft picks and got their first look at infielder Elmer Pichardo. Magdiel Sanchez, who was acquired in a trade from the Tritons earlier in the week, participated in batting practice and infield drills. 
              Davie Goliaths' manager Phil Laufman led his team through an efficient practice Notable veterans, such as infielder Chris Jones and outfielder Paul Nolan, were standouts. Draft picks Miguel Romaguera and infielder Jean Franco were present. Franco has already signed for the season, Romaguera has not yet.
              The Hollywood Stars had a well attended practice that featured newly acquired catcher Dio Castillo among others. Manager Ishy Demoya was satisfied with the effort put forth by his team, noting that the Stars were already much better prepared for the coming campaign than they were at this point last season.
              Hallandale Twins' manager Brent Campbell did not join the Fraternals for their first workout, but the team welcomed back infielders Clyde Yeh and Luis Pagan, and outfielder Sheng Tzu-Peng. All three players missed last season. Pagan is already signed for the season. 
              Both Davis and Battiste have been inactive for several seasons. 
              Today was the first day that Cory McEwen managed the Broward Cubs on the field without carrying the interim label. McEwen opened his second season as Cubs' skipper by leading the teams through a variety of drills followed by live batting practice.
              Finally, the Delray Beach Mudcats spent their two hour practice, mostly, evaluating new players. Unsigned draftees, infielders Jesus Capriles and Jorge Hechevaria and second baseman Luis Uffre, who is signed, joined veterans such as Jose Ayala, Joe Feller, Roberto Esquenazi, and Sean McClaskie.
              Teams will continue workouts, with some exhibition games, leading up to opening day on April 23.
