Outfielder Wil Myers
On the crowd of front office staff watching his first BP session: “I didn’t really notice it too much, but I didn’t want to take it as added pressure or anything. I just wanted to go out there and get my work done. … I had some nerves when I first stepped in. I just wanted to take a couple good swings just to relax a little bit, but I think it went well.”
