I played up till college and decided I didn't wanna spend my college playing baseball.

During High School I would play around 70 games a year.

Travel teams, Highschool summer team, and american legion.

I made american legion All Stars for the DC area. Joe Saunders AAA Angels was on my team. He 2 hit our team when I faced him in the regular season but I got a hit.

I got to face Seth McClung in high school as well and I feel like I may have faced either Jeff Francis or Jason Bay as we played the Canadian national team or something and they destroyed us.

Currently I play in a 18+ Wood bat league which is very competitive. Our team at one point this year had 5 minor leaguers. One of them Brad Stiles was AA Cubs last year.

The wood bat league is by far the most fun I've ever had playing baseball ;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I played HS baseball and was Allstate at third base. I was alot like Brandon Inge. I had a great glove and strong arm.. Hit for power. But had a lousy batting average.

I played high school baseball, and had a few bites and offers of college scholarships. But a blown out knee during my high school senior season ended any chance of a scholarship going my way. If I had went ahead and had knee surgery, I possibly would have still gotten a scholarship. But I was hard headed :*) and wanted to help my high school team win the state championship, so I bandaged the thing up for the rest of the year and finished out the season even though my average took a huge hit due to the injury. I still think about that decision today, but I would not go back and change it as those last 2 months of my senior season in baseball were absolutely great. During college, I tried to get back in shape enough to give the baseball team a try once again, but my knee just could not handle the pressure, so I finally had to give up my dream.

Just high school ball here ;-)
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
