St. Petersburg -- March 1985

They're playing while we're working. Their grass is green, ours is dormant. We're at Cardinals practice in St. Petersburg, March 1985.
I'll admit it, views like this easily make natives of the northeast envious.
Around the batting cage at Al Lang Stadium: Tom Nieto, Jack Clark, Lonnie Smith, Glenn Brummer, Mike Jorgensen.

(Above:) Just a month after being traded to the Cardinals, 1st baseman Jack Clark gets in his swings. That October, he'd belt the game-winning 9th inning home run in the sixth and final game of the National League Championship Series.
