This years' targets include many newcomers like Chris Haney, Mike Venafro, Mike Hampton, Ray King, Chris Spurling, Jung Bong, and many more.
Camp Leo starts today, while pitchers and catchers are due to report to the Disney complex on February 13th. The Braves' kick off their '03 ST schedule with their yearly matchup against this year's college opponent, Georgia Tech.
