Thursday marked the first game action of any kind for Grady Sizemore since September of 2011. That’s nearly 900 days away from the game for the former Gold-Glove outfielder. He went hitless in 2 at bats from the leadoff spot, playing 3 innings in left field for the defending champs against the Northeastern University Huskies. It was a rather uneventful day, which is a good thing for the oft-injured Sizemore.
