Grand Junction Rockies center fielder Pedro Gonzalez is back at Suplizio Field for a second season a little more comfortable with his new position. A converted infielder, Gonzalez is still learning the ins and outs of playing the outfield.

The ball came off the wall and Pedro Gonzalez played it perfectly on the hop, quickly throwing the ball to the infield.
In the 10th inning Monday night in the Grand Junction Rockies’ season opener, a deep fly ball got over his head, although his speed allowed him to nearly make a circus catch over his shoulder.
Center field is still a position Gonzalez, a converted shortstop, is learning, but after only one game, it’s clear he’s made strides from a year ago.
