Someone mentioned a pregame, players-only meeting. No one here was aware of anything. The clubhouse was never closed. There was the usual hitters’ meeting before tonight’s game. This occurs before each series as Greg Walker sits down with the hitters and goes over the opposing team’s pitchers, strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, etc.
