Batting practice Bengals

A rather unusual sight greeted me when I arrived at Great American Ball Park this morning.

Mixed among the Reds players on the field during batting practice was a contingent of rather large human beings sporting orange T-Shirts.

Turns out, it was the Cincinnati Bengals who begin their mini-camp at Paul Brown Stadium this week.

Several Bengals players took their hacks in the batting cage led by linebacker David Pollack who emerged as the overwhelming star.

Among Pollack's batting practice homers was a shot that struck the LaRosa's sign just below the left-field bleachers.

By the way, a Louisville Slugger looks more like a toothpick when held by the 6-5, 340-pound Willie Anderson.
