PHOENIX (AP) – Baker Mayfield did not intend to abandon this opportunity.
Realizing that Milwaukee Brewers wanted to protect him, Mayfield knew that he would not fall into a spring training game during his two-day holiday with the Netherlands champions. But they allowed Cleveland Brown advocates to become very close – an unexpected time as the first coach behind the base for three filing on Saturday.
As the pioneer brigade came to the bottom of the fourth, that's when the third base coach, Eddie Cedar
Did his baseball buddies give him any advice?
"Pay attention," said Mayfield. "Keep track of the guys who copy each other".
Mayfield is friends with Christian Elièch and joined NL MVP and Brewers on the night. The winner of the 2017 Heisman Trophy accepted the practice of batting and showed off, dropping some gaps to some of the team's staff.
"I thought that he had done a great job," said Eliech from the BP Meyfield session. "It was very fun. He got a pretty good swing."
As the first base coach, Mayfield skillfully cultivated the Travis Milwaukee Show, which ricochet from brewers in the fourth. But Mayfield threw in a terrific rude carom from under the gesture of Elika in the sixth.
Mayfield quickly learned not too comfortable in the boxer's coach.
"I do not know why they painted there," Meyfield – he said. "It's not a regulatory size and it's too close. I'm looking at Eddie on the third base and he's in the field."
Mike Mustakas, though, may want to make Mayfield dangle even more. The "Brewers" star in the fourth place hit the gap in the right-hand center, and Mayfield waved his hand waving a hand when Mustacas reached seconds securely on the double.
On May 6th, missed the chance to give Mustakas a high-five after the infielder got into a two-way home run. "Mayfield" went to the dugout "Brewers" and leaned over the railing to celebrate.
Having said Mayfield, with pride: "All I know is Malibu Mike was 2 for 2, when I was training the first base."
It was about
"He is a professional athlete," said Craig Counsel, Brewery Manager. "He looks like a player and he plays a lot of baseball. We played the game (on the night) in batting practice, the game in points, and he was in it until the final round. He justified himself very well in defensive, offensive And in the clubhouse he did a good job. "
Brewers prepared him perfectly with brand Brewer's No. 6. Someone updated it on a Saturday with a white ribbon that called" 16% fat. "
" I did not put it there "- said Eliech.
Mayfield and Ellich met in the gym in Westlake Village, California, the defender was preparing for the NFL and Black Kay in 2018. Mayfield plays the third base in Oklahoma, but he is more famous for having played Rounds twice in three years in the semifinals of qualifying football.
"He is a great athlete and has some baseball background," Elič said. "I saw him shaking before – I was not really surprised that he managed well."
The show, native Ohio, loves Mayfield for what he has done on a soccer field.
A Brown fan, – Shaw said.
Mayfield led Brauns to record 7-8-1 last season after they left 0-16 a year earlier.
The original pitcher of the Rocky Mountains, by the way, was John Gray, who also visited Oklahoma. Mayfield imagined how he could face him in the test window.
"It would be (fun) – OU at the NU," said Mayfield. "I never met him. They had their photo across the campus."
Gray said: "I love the player he is. He is a favorite player of all my family members."
The show wanted to make sure they protected the NFL star.
"I think he wanted to (get into the game), but he's a defender," Shaw said. "He's just a cool guy. This is my team, so I'm a great fan."
Singer Hart Brooks and comedians Will Ferrell had symbolic views in the spring training games, but they did it to help charity organizations. Seattle Seahawa Captain Russell Wilson, who played two seasons in minors from Colorado, got into an exhibition game for New York Yankees.
. "I know he is Baker Mayfield, but one of the players basically leads his friend and he gets the opportunity to play the game. (Mayfield) here to have fun."
Mayfield did just that. "I always loved baseball, I dreamed of playing it professionally, and now I'm part of the brewers," said Mayfield.
Did he think he could get a boost?
"I do not think Brownies would be very happy about this," said Mayfield. Autograph Meyfild on Braun's helmet, he's good.
"I will force him to sign him before he goes," Shaw said.
