Alumni News: Brandon Belt
Brandon Belt made his AAA debut with the Fresno Grizzlies last night and went 1-for-3 with a homerun, 3 runs scored, a stolen base, 1 rbi (see the homerun), and 2 walks. Pretty cool, eh? Read a really nice blog post (plus see some photos and a couple of videos) at the 22gigantes blog. Too bad it was all in a losing effort.
By the way, he was sporting the high-sock look. Still love me some high socks!
And, just for fun, a link to the official box for the game.

MLB Draft - Final (?) Update
The MLB Draft signing deadline passed about an hour ago. When all was said and done, Chance Ruffin and Brandon Workman signed (Ruffin with the Tigers for $1.15M and Workman with the Red Sox for $800K). Cole Green and Tant Shepherd did not sign with their clubs so will be back on campus for the 2011 campaign. I wish the best to Ruffin and Workman and am very excited at the idea of getting to watch Green and Shepherd for another season.
Check out my 2010 MLB Draft Summary page for info on other players of interest. Of interest to me, at any rate...if not to you!
Also, see a nice blog post by Alan Trubow regarding Green and Shepherd. 'Like the quote at the end from Green.
And, now it's time to start thinking about Fall Ball. We've got games against Texas State and Vanderbilt scheduled for the 2nd and 3rd weekends in October.
