GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Following about two weeks of drills, meetings, batting practice and bullpen sessions, the Reds' Spring Training moves to a much-anticipated and more tangible phase. Tuesday will mark the start of games, as the Reds will play the first of three straight vs. the Indians at Goodyear Ballpark (3:05 p.m. ET on MLB.TV and Gameday Audio).
"You put all the work in, but you finally get a chance to get on the field and play a game where the real competition comes out," Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton said. "It's been a good spring. I felt like last year, we were working in camp for 2 1/2 weeks before we played the game. Now, it feels like we just started camp and the games come. That makes it even better. Practicing is a good thing, but you always want to show what you can do on the field. I'm excited about it. It should be fun."
