The amazing thing is that he is 13, and in middle school. He has been gung ho on baseball since he was about 6, and has always been the star shortstop on all the teams on which he played. I know we are signing kids out of high school these days, but this is really amazing to me.
I guess the idea is to seek out only the outstanding players on all the teams in your area, and later when it's time for them to try to break into baseball, the scouts have a leg up on the competition who come late to table.
I miss Knot Hole Gang Vet's posts.
