In this episode of the Sports Card Radio Prospect Podcast I talk about the opening Stockton Ports home series vs. the Modesto Nuts and Lake Elsinore Storm from April 12-18, 2012. Several top prospects were on the field during those series including: Rymer Liriano, Cory Spangenberg, Miles Head, A.J. Cole and more. I was impressed with the athleticism and overall tools of Liriano and you can check out some observations I had about Rymer here. Miles Head, Oakland A’s prospect, continues to tear it up and has hit over .400 the first few weeks of the season. I talk about his uncanny ability to get hits.
Should see a lot of A’s pitching prospect A.J. Cole this season and I witnessed his second start on 4-13-2012. He is a young kid with a real loose arm. Check out his pre-game bullpen session from his start on the 13th and also some notes I wrote up.
An interesting thing happened during the April 15th game against the Modesto Nuts. A 50 foot swarm of bees took to the field and sent players hitting the deck during the game to avoid the killing machines. Thankfully the bees left the field in time for the game to resume. Which concluded with a 3-run walk off HR by A’s prospect Ryan Pineda. I also had a chance to talk to Pineda and fellow A’s prospect Rashun Dixon before the game on the 18th of April. They are two nice guys and I share some of the things we talked about on this episode!
