Congrats to the young man. One of the very few bright spots in but yet another disappointing season of Tennessee Baseball.

I see he's playing in the Northwoods League for the St Cloud (MN) franchise. He's in the other division from my Madison Mallards so it'll be a road trip to see him play live but hoping to do so this summer.
