Best part of the article

Smith, for one, is taking a lighthearted approach to what he jokingly refers to as "camping out."
"We're staying out there so they have the marshmallows and the graham crackers ready and the bonfire going," Smith said. "Someone has the karaoke machine with 'Kumbaya' all ready to go and we're just going to sleep in sleeping bags ... and have a good old time."
Rivera said he likes that players aren't complaining about the move because it shows some mental toughness and dedication to the task at hand, which is winning the season opener.
"We can easily accept (the move) and say it's a reason why or we can say it's the reason because," Rivera said. "That's the way I look at it. That's my whole point. I'm going to leave it at that."

I love it. I think a great way to stregthen a team is to keep putting them in unfamiliar enviroments. Pretty soo they'll see the only thing constant through the season is their teamates and coaching staff. They will learn to lean on one another and rely on one another. it also helps them focus on the game rather than where they are giving them a more adaptive mindtset.
