Spring Training is in full swing and the season is right around the corner. This does not mean the Carlos Martinez is slowing down in his charitable efforts, however. In fact, he appears to be stepping up even more, bringing along the Cardinals top pitching prospect, Alex Reyes, and possibly top infield prospect, Edmundo Sosa. This week they visited Green Acres Youth Baseball and played a little Vitilla, a game similar to Wiffleball developed in the Dominican Republic that was originally played with broom handles and milk caps.
