The only undefeated force in Spring Training is the sun

There is no more powerful force in this universe than Yoenis Cespedes, but the sun is definitely a close second. For baseball players, the sun is a part-time actor, only showing itself once or twice a week during day games.

But because almost all Spring Training games are day games played in two states with particularly bright sunlight that have Major League stadiums with roofs, it's common to see more solar-influenced kerfuffles on fly balls than usual. Check out the video at the top of the page to see us review all the "the-sun-was-in-my-eyes" moments of Spring Training thus far.
