It’s Lucas Duda’s first day in Port St. Lucie: “It’s good to get back on the field again. I wanted to start work early because of my injury. I’m swinging the bat and things are fine. Dave Hudgens and I will be working every day until camp opens. Last year was a tough year for me. That’s in the past. I’m looking forward to putting up the kind of numbers that I’m capable of.”
"It stopped being funny like the 300th time I heard it." - Mets, Lucas Duda
"I’ve heard it for so long, it doesn’t even matter," said Duda. The Braves employ a highly entertaining organist, Matthew Kaminski, who played the song [Camptown Races] multiple times during Duda at-bats. The crowd widely participated, singing the "Dooooh, dah, Dooooh, dah."
