2018 NFL Training Camps are opening

PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY NFL COMMUNICATIONS; COURTESY NFLmedia.com

 

NFL clubs will begin their on-field preparations for the 2018 season this week, as rookies for the Baltimore Ravens, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints will report to camp by Thursday, July 19.

The Ravens, who will take on the Bears in the NFL/Hall of Fame Game (Thursday, August 2; NBC, 8:00 PM ET), will be the first team with a full squad in camp when their veterans report on Wednesday, July 18. By Friday, July 27, all 32 NFL teams will be in camp.

This year, more than half the league (21 of 32, 66 percent) will be “staying home” for training camp. Teams considered to be “staying home” hold training camp at their respective practice facility, home stadium or at a site within 10 miles of their team headquarters. In 2000, only 10 of 31 (32 percent) teams stayed close to home.

“Twin Cities Orthopedics are a great partner and we can’t wait for training camp for our fans to see this incredible facility,” said Vikings co-owner and president MARK WILF of the Vikings’ new training camp home. “I know our staff, our coaches, our players feel great in the new home. Eden Prairie was a great home for us, and now Eagan going forward is a great community and we’re excited to be a part of it for a long time to come.”

While several teams are staying close to home for camp, 11 teams still employ the philosophy of holding camp away from their facilities.

The Houston Texans are one of the teams that “come together” away from home, holding training camp at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia for the second consecutive season.

“We really like The Greenbrier,” said Texans head coach BILL O’BRIEN. “It gives us a chance to get away. I think it was good last year for the team bonding…We felt like we came out of there with some good chemistry, with guys feeling good about their roles on the team, and The Greenbrier itself is a great place.”

Green Bay and Pittsburgh hold the longest active NFL training camp tenures, with the Packers returning for their 61st consecutive summer at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin. The Steelers will train at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania for the 53rd straight season.

The number of NFL teams that stayed home for training camp since 2000:

Garcia ties club record with 5 hits in Dragons 12-5 drubbing of Timber Rattlers

GAME RECAP WRITTEN BY Tom Nichols; COURTESY DAYTON DRAGONS MEDIA RELATIONS

 

Appleton, Wisc.—Dayton’s Jose Garcia tied a club record with five hits as the Dragons defeated the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers 12-5 on Friday night.  The game featured a rain delay of one hour, 20 minutes after the third inning and ended at 12:52 a.m. EDT.  The Dragons victory allowed them to avoid a sweep in the three-game series.

 

Garcia became just the ninth player in Dragons history to collect five hits in a game and the first since Seth Mejias-Brean in 2013.  He had an opportunity to break the club record in his final at-bat in the ninth inning, but grounded out to shortstop.

Jose Garcia

 

The Dragons finished the night with 18 hits, one short of their 2018 season high.  Along with Garcia’s five hits, Andy Sugilio and Mark Kolozsvary each added three, while Leandro Santana and Alejo Lopez had two.  Santana had a two-run home run in the fifth inning, his eighth homer of the year.

 

The Dragons broke open a 5-2 game with seven runs in the sixth inning as they sent 11 batters to the plate.  The seven runs in one inning established a new season high, and they tied the season high for hits in an inning with six.  All six hits were singles.  Garcia had two hits in the inning, scored one run, and drove in two.  Kolozsvary contributed a two-run single in the inning and Lopez also had an RBI single as the Dragons jumped ahead 12-2.

 

Dragons starting pitcher Hunter Greene saw his start shortened by the rain delay.  He worked three innings, allowing one run on one hit with two walks and five strikeouts.  Cory Thompson (5-3) was credited with the win, going two innings and allowing one run.  Brian Hunter picked up a three-inning save, allowing two runs.

 

The Dragons improved to 13-15 in the second half.  They are one-half game behind Fort Wayne, the wildcard leader in the Midwest League East Division Second Half playoff chase.
