    I think you've mentioned Mitchell Clarke, also. Anything you can tell us about him?
    Brandon is a very fast kid who's a tremendous athlete. He has been a lead off hitter earlier as a youngster but was moved to the 3 spot from 15 to 18. In Canada we don't use aluminum bats from 16 and up and Brandon showed the ability to still hit for some power with a wooden bat Banging them out of the park on a fairly consistent basis. Hitting home runs vs pro pitching as a 17 and 18 year old as part of our national team. That said he is best suited as a high average gap power player which his coaches in Vegas have told him that's what they want him to concentrate on. As a lead off hitter he's going to have to become more patient. He's very aggressive in the box. He is a very dedicated young man and I have no doubt that he's working his tail off to succeed.


    As for Mitch he was a year older than my son so I didn't know his game as well but watched him on many occasions while he was growing up.

    Nice job, goya. Thanks. Not sure I've ever seen a runner peel off like that before he was even tagged.

    Me neither. I was a little upset about it at first but quickly thought that it is probably best that he not risk an injury trying to bowl over the catcher.
