    Interesting bit from a local publication

    http://beachcarolina.com/2011/05/25/...ive-to-roster/

    Kimmel, also a sophomore, has been a do-it-all player for the Pioneers in his two seasons. As a freshman, he was the starting shortstop and pitched as the closer. This season, however, when the team’s starting catcher went down with an injury, Kimmel volunteered to help the team behind the dish, though he had not caught since he was twelve years old. The 6-feet tall, 185-pounder, who has committed to continue his collegiate career at Stetson University in the fall, has started at catcher all season and been very impressive both on defense and at the plate. Kimmel is batting .361 and is a perpetual gap hitter, smacking seventeen doubles and three triples on the year.

    I was about to post that the Reds needed some catchers to catch all these new pitchers.

    So MLB's tracker isn't working? Anyone listening live?

    Yard is an awful name for a pitcher, almost as bad as Homer.

    I think it is Suiter on the other.

    Suiter has a decent write-up on BA, says he is a Santa Clara commit. Above avg runner, compact swing and gap power.

    I think being able to play baseball for a living might be one of the only reasons I'd want to leave Hawaii if I was one of those kids.

    Took a moment to look at players drafted from Missouri, my wife's home state. I see there is a Henke, but it's not Tom's son. I've messaged Tom's brother to see if it's a relative since the Henkes are my wife's second cousin. Then I noticed a kid named Fick, also from central Missouri, and I know my wife has a great grandmother (or maybe a generation further back) whose maiden name was Fick. I tease her that there are only ten family names in that part of the state.

    After a little research, I see Travis Henke is Tom Henke's nephew, so he's my kids' 3rd cousin. Now I wonder about Fick.

    Amlung got a little love from BA.

    After redshirting in 2009, Amlung blossomed into Louisville's top starter. He's not physical at 6 feet and 174 pounds, and he doesn't have overwhelming stuff, yet he gets outs and misses bats.
