Sydney Peterson, 13, of Seattle, watches batting practice during Spring Training at the Peoria Sports Complex on Tuesday, February 19, 2013, in Peoria, Ariz. She and her family had just finished playing a soccer tournament in the Phoenix-area, and dropped by to see the activities in Peoria. She was waiting to get an autograph from outfielder Casper Wells. When asked why specifically Wells, she said, "Because he's a left fielder and he's kind of cute."
