No. I don't care about the AB's. I just think it's good for them to get a feel for all the behind the scenes stuff in the major leagues, sitting in the dugout with true major leaguers, listening, learning.............I don't care if he gets 5 at-bats. I know if I was in the minors and never been to the majors, it would be kind of intimidating. The adjustment to even the pampered part would take some time. And not like they need any more motivation, but getting a taste would surely wet their whistle of desire to work even harder to get there, once they see how great it is (which I'm sure they already knew).
As stated, the adjustment to all the other stuff outside of the game is why I want them to get a taste.
