Carpenter Gets To Camp Early

St. Louis third baseman Matt Carpenter is in Florida early to work.
JUPITER, Fla--It's Valentine's Day, and that means only one thing.

Pitchers and catchers are on the green grass fields of Florida and Arizona.

Baseball spring training camps are open.

Down in Jupiter, Florida the defending National League Champion St. Louis Cardinals are actually in their second full day of workouts.

In addition to the pitchers, some position players have shown up early, like Matt Carpenter.

He's moving from second base to third, the position he played while at Double AA Springfield.

"It's hard to keep me away from the baseball field," said St. Louis Cardinal Matt Carpenter.  "I just love coming here and getting started early.  It's tough for me, a lot of guys enjoy the offseason, and not to say that I don't.  It's hard for me to sit still.  Any chance I can get down here early and get to work, I'll take full advantage of it.."
