Hey Blog World
Hey everybody, I’m finally set up and ready to go with this blog. I’m sure you can get a good bit of info on me through the profile, but I prefer a more personal touch. I’m currently a minor league pitcher in the Cleveland Indians organization. Drafted last year in the 8th round of the draft, I signed and left Marietta College (OH) after my junior year. Although I plan to finish my education as soon as possible, why not leave on top I figured. The Indians produced a great offer and we just got done winning the Division III National Championship. Great opportunities and dreams come few and far between in this world so I took it and ran. Which leaves me here, sitting in my Holiday Inn room at Winter Haven, FL working my way through Spring Training with the Tribe preparing for my 2007 season.
Spring Training has been a dream come true. Hours on end of PFP’s and bullpens followed by more time in the weight room and training room than out on the field. I love it. Who doesn’t like coming to work at 8:30, leaving by 1 and playing the great game of baseball in between. Today was the first day of throwing live batting practice to hitters and, although they only allowed us to throw fastballs and changeups, it was a great chance to get used to facing batters again.
Anyway, I’ll be back plenty of times to update you on the everyday happennings here in good ole’ Winter Haven. If you’ve got any questions, just bring them on and I’ve got answers for you.
Have a great day,
