Each year as the position players make their way to Spring Training, members of the front office will travel to Tucson to address the players before their first official workout of the season. Those who spoke to the team included General Partner Ken Kendrick, CEO/President Derrick Hall, General Manager Josh Byrnes, and of course Manager AJ Hinch.
As expected both Hinch and Byrnes spoke of on-field expectations. Perhaps one of the most telling comments came from Byrnes when he stood up and sent a very strong message that he and the baseball operations staff feel they have put together a team that could not only be competitive but they have the talent to win the World Series.
