Forget about those halcyon first few days of spring training, when arranging for the right tee time on the right golf course is often more challenging than the work on the field.

Day 1 and Day 2. ... Multiple ups for the starters," Matheny said Friday, June 26, 2020, on a video conference call. “These guys are prepared for that. They've been hungry for it.” (AP Photo/Ross D.
