MLB players hate "freezing" Arizona spring training weather
MLB players are not okay with our cooler-than-average spring training weather, The Athletic reports in hilarious detail.
What they're saying: "It's been f---ing freezing here," Brewers shortstop Willy Adames said.
- "We've got guys wearing beanies and hoodies and jackets. Everybody's trying to stay warm," said Dodgers third baseman Max Muncy.
- "I don't know why we're practicing in winter," Padres pitcher Seth Lugo said.
State of play: Yes, it has been colder than usual, with many days in February and the beginning of March only reaching highs in the low 60s.
- It even snowed in north Scottsdale last week.
But, but, but: Come on! That's not exactly a frostbite risk, and most of these players are coming from cities with much colder conditions.
What's next: Fear not, chilly athletes! We are expected to heat up with highs in the 70s this week.
