Soggy Wednesday

Soggy conditions didn’t set back some of the Marlins’ morning drills on Wednesday.

It remains unseasonally chilly in Jupiter, and making the conditions more uncomfortable in the morning were the rain.

Still, the exhibition with the Italian World Baseball Classic team is on. The Marlins were doing drills on the back fields and the main field at Roger Dean Stadium late in the morning.
