Training… and baseball!

Barca’s final training session in Seattle ended on a light note with an improvised baseball game at the University of Washington facilities.
After their comfortable win over Seattle Sounders, the squad had a typically relaxed post match
session, with Marquez the only player to miss out, whilst Iniesta worked on his own in the gym to
build up his strength. Ibrahimovic was again the focus of the fans’ attention as he practiced

Whilst the rest of the squad did some gentle ball control
work, Zlatan Ibrahimovic was practicing his shooting, firing in crosses from Juan Carlos Unzué from
all angles at Victor Valdes for 20 minutes and clearly entertaining the fans who had come to watch
the training session.
Baseball skills on show
Meanwhile, the rest of the squad had moved onto
the University baseball diamond and in an improvised game, Pique and Puyol showed their abilities
as pitchers, whilst Gudjhonsen, Pinto and Fontás all enjoyed some big hits. Bojan was advised by
the rest of the squad to keep his day job - baseball doesn’t seem to be his strongest sport!
