You work for the Silver Hawks?! I tend to go to quite a few of their games a year!
I can remember watching him play many a times. The ball did have that 'diiferent' sound coming off of that kid's bat! I was impressed with his raw skills, but, at the time, felt his attitude would hold him back. He appears to have matured both on and off of the field. Good for him, especially after having to live here, in South Bend for awhile.
Great article, BTW. My gut feeling based on watching him here wasn't very good, maybe I need to re-think this.
On a side note, are there any youngsters that should be watched slated to play in South Bend this year? I have never been much of a minor league evaluator, and of course most guys we see here do not go too much further. I would love to get a Cafe Veteran's opinion on one to watch!
BTW, free tix?
