WWU: Zack Cox enjoying unseasonably warm winter

by on January 14, 2012 · 3 comments

At an event dubbed “Winter Warm-Up”, Zack Cox said he was happy that the winter has already been unseasonably warm.

“Three days ago I think I hit on the field, so that was quite of a, that was a nice little pleasant surprise.”

Cox has been back in Arkansas, working out with former Razorback teammate and current Padres second baseman Logan Forsythe, former big-league catcher Vance Wilson, and his college hitting coach Todd Butler.

When asked whether a position move is in his future, Cox indicated that to-date, nothing is in the works:

“I haven’t played anywhere but third base, so that’s where I’ve been working.  Until they tell me differently, I’m gonna keep working there and just see what happens.”

Cox finished 2011 strong with the double-A Springfield Cardinals, and looks to build on that progress in all aspects of his game – including focusing on being able to turn on the inside pitch and drive those pitchers for power, building on his strong second half.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.

Definitely hasn’t had any problem hitting the field here in Arkansas. I think we’ve had about four really cold days this winter, and one of those was two days ago when he was probably on his way to St. Louis.

I think I need to move.

While I’d never turn down anyone showing up to the great state of Arkansas, it is a bit unusual. We usually have some colder days, even if there are years where the only snow we see is on the TV reports from Chicago. :)
