Cardinals Spring Training Photo Pack: 02/24

A photographic journal of the early days of the St. Louis Cardinals 2008 spring training focuses on the veterans in camp.

To augment the weekly "Cardinals Spring Training Report" on FSN Midwest next this Sunday and Monday nights at 10:00 P.M. Central, we are offering a photo journal of recent activities from St. Louis Cardinals spring training camp in Jupiter, Florida. Remember the first exhibition game is right around the corner - this Wednesday, February 27!

Albert Pujols shows off that right elbow that seems to concern so many.

Rick Ankiel gets a jump on the centerfield job.

Juan Gonzalez has to be the most-watched newcomer in camp. He is in a hitting group that includes Pujols.

Out of options, Skip Schumaker needs to impress with the glove and bat to make the club for the third consecutive spring.

Joel Pineiro passes by Deadwood on his way to drills.

Ryan Franklin concentrates on pitching, not the surroundings.

Todd Wellemeyer pitches under the watchful eye of long-time pitching coach Dave Duncan.

Brad Thompson is competing with Wellemeyer for a rotation spot.

The eldest Cardinals player, 39-year-old reliever Russ Springer, won't be seeing too much game action early on.

Like Springer, closer Jason Isringhausen is going to "save his bullets" for the regular season.

With Matt Clement's setback, expectations for Anthony Reyes have increased again. How will he respond?

Ryan Ludwick comes to camp with a job seemingly in sight.

Catcher Yadier Molina keeps his head down and his eye on the ball.

The first sighting of Scott Spiezio's facial hair is a welcome sign of spring.
