Dirtbags Alumni, Pro/Am Exhibition Games

Time for baseball! Time for college baseball! The Dirtbags, young and old, took the field today, and I've got pictures. Jered Weaver, trying to swing a bat? Playing outfield, second base, and shortstop, too? Now I've seen everything...

Weaver does appear more physically imposing in these photos than he did last year. Perhaps there is something to Scott Boras' conditioning program at Soka U.
There's an article at the Yahoo! MLB page (http://tinyurl.com/dao66) that discusses off-season workouts, with Jered Weaver's regime being a bulk of the article.

Excerpt (my emphasis):

A year on this program has [Jered] Weaver in "by far" the best shape of his life. He has gone from 190 to 220 pounds without adding a hint of fat. He once walked with his shoulders slouched, but the 6-7 righthander says he feels and looks taller because of his workouts. By the time he reports to spring training, he figures his right arm will be about 90 percent ready for the season, his conditioning "100 percent."
Yeah, that Yahoo article sounds suspiciously familiar...
Hey, look at that! Great minds think alike!
