So what does that mean? Well, when the Sea Dogs are at home they usually arrive at the field 6 to 7 hours before a 6:00 PM start to work on those little things that are so important.

During this series with Reading, the Red Sox have a host of instructors in town working with the players. Chad Epperson is the catching instructor and he will work with Juan Apodaca and Luis Exposito.
