Catching up with Astros OF Adam Bailey

It's been a while since I first interviewed Astros OF Adam Bailey. As a matter of fact, it's been almost a year. But that doesn't mean I haven't been keeping my eye out for him. I wrote this post after watching him play in Corpus last June. Bailey's 2012 season was a bit more up and down than his excellent 2011 season, but he definitely held his own. He was scheduled to DH for the Hooks in the Texas League playoffs when a rather inconvenient bout of appendicitis landed him in the hospital.

I caught up with Adam via email to see how he spent his off-season and what his goals for Spring Training are. This is was he had to say.

"Well I spent my off-season lifting, following the program the Astros gave me ... sometimes haha. I found a nice place in Kansas to hit and throw. I do enjoy the off-season because I get to spend time with Mariah, my girlfriend, and my pets but I do begin to miss the guys and the competing in all aspects of the game. My goals for spring training are usually always the same but this year will be a little different. I am known for having a below average spring training according to me. I am going to prove to myself that I belong in the starting lineup for a team. I am going to try to roll with the punches, try and not get so frustrated when I fail, and above all else I am going to have fun."

Sounds like a plan Adam. Good luck in the coming season!
