Usually, there's not a whole lot of news that takes place at Spring Training aside from updates and quotes on players; however, the return of Miguel Tejada made for some interesting reading this morning.
As most know, this is Miguel Tejada's second tour of duty in Baltimore and today he reported to camp, much like everyone so far -- happy to be in the Florida Sunshine and prepping for baseball.
Several of the news websites got some quotes from Tejada and so far he sounds like a new man. He sounds like he's happy to be an Oriole and might be energized by the youth around him.
"They make me feel young,'' he said. "They are going to be playing hard and I’m going to try to do the same thing. Everybody knows that I love this game, that I play this game hard, and I know these kids know that I’m really anxious to be a winner. I think they are going to try to give me the opportunity here."
