Ladies and gentleman, meet James Benjamin Gosewich -- or, to his friends and teammates, just "Tuffy."

Tuffy Gosewich is a 5-11, 180-pound, 28-year-old catcher and my favorite name in camp.
Tuffy has spent the last seven seasons in the minor leagues hopping up and down from Lakewood to Clearwater to Reading to Lehigh Valley. He hit for a .247 batting average, 66 RsBI and 13 home runs in AA in 2011.
This, if you haven't figured out, is our way of saying "pitchers and catchers reported yesterday and the first workouts are today."
Happy Spring Training, everybody.
