Cricket Star Kieran Powell Tosses His Bat and Picks Up a Smaller, Rounder One | NYTimes

This would be fun; I hope he gets a shot:

According to research done at the Baseball Hall of Fame, no known professional cricket player has successfully made it to baseball’s top level.

Powell yearns to be the exception, and he has impressed baseball professionals like Ryan Jackson, the Cincinnati Reds’ hitting coordinator, who says he has a chance.

Counterpoint:

...a Yankees scout had a look at Powell in Florida this week, and was rather unimpressed.

What exactly did he think of his hitting skills? “He sucks. He’s not worth any time,” the scout told ESPN.com.
