Did you play ball at Virginia Tech? Or did you play with him at high school? Either way, that's pretty sweet.
I played against him in highschool
He played for West Springfield HS and I played for O'Connell we were both state champs. My school private and his public in VA... I think the same year.
I also faced him in american legion ball. he 2 hit us I remember. I got one of the hits up the middle. He played for Springfield American Legion and I played for Arlington.
He was throwing 90-92 and his fastball moved a ton!
I also, Played with him on the American Legion All Star team one summer.
Our baseball team was pretty solid and so was the team he was on. I don't remember too many other names from his teams but I think a good portion of them probably went on to play minor league ball.
Our teams closer my junior year on Varsity was Gibran Hamdan.
Anyways it was cool playing in an area with lots of good athletes. Saunders was one of the bigger names definitely
