Jose Reyes took the last of his dozen-or-so swings, stepped out of the batting cage and did a little dance to the beat of the music playing from a small radio in the grass near his feet.
Contrite but happy to be back on a baseball field, Colorado's All-Star shortstop worked out at the Rockies' spring training facility on Thursday, his first step in returning from a 59-day suspension for violating Major League Baseball's new domestic violence policy.
"It's good to be on the field and put that stuff behind me," Reyes said. "I'm sorry. I made a mistake and will stand here like a man. I just have to try to be a better man, a better husband."
