We all miss baseball. Opening Day was supposed to be this week. It’s tough, so unlike a normal Rockpile, I wanted to bring you some of the responses we’ve seen from players and coaches. This time looks a little bit different for everyone, some of these are serious, some of these are fun, and some of these will give you insight into what workouts look like for the players right now.
I’m going to start with some more of the serious posts and then we’ll get a little more lighthearted. Nolan Arenado took the time to thank healthcare workers and those that are currently working hard to help everyone else out in each of our respective communities. He also thanked the fans, and like us, discusses how much he misses baseball.

Bud Black also wanted to thank all the essential workers out there trying to keep our communities afloat. Trevor Story and Kyle Freeland (joined by a special furry friend) had similar sentiments.
Josh Fuentes took the time to reach out to Isotopes fans and those specifically in Albuquerque community and say “thank you.”
We also want to say “thank you,” to all of the workers out there who doing important jobs day in and day out during these unprecedented times.

Now, are you looking for a creative way to get a workout in while staying at home? Drew Butera and David Dahl might have a few ideas for you.
Quarantine Workout. Lucky to have a field behind my house. Staying ready but socially distanced. pic.twitter.com/RLxHeiAGLE— David Dahl (@ddahl21) March 21, 2020
Ryan McMahon was working on his swing with a super creative set-up. Do you have ladders, a tee and a blanket? You too could practice your swing.
Charlie Blackmon decided now was the time to do a little DIY. Beware of the scary basement and spider webs if you choose to do any DIY projects while you’re social distanc.... erm... I mean social DIYstancing.
I just went into the scary basement, fought off spider webs, and fixed my hot water heater with actual wrenches. This is how bad we need baseball to come back. #socialDIYstancing— Charlie Blackmon (@Chuck_Nazty) March 21, 2020
David Dahl also took the time to talk about hitting and answer questions from fans on Twitter yesterday.
And last, but definitely not least, if you want to have a laugh, Nolan Arenado and Josh Fuentes can sure help out. They wanted to get some drills in — it’s just not how you expect it!
