My bad, wrong thread.

I thought it was a touching video and it humanizes the players who so often are seen by fans purely as cogs to be praised or booed based on their performance on the field. I hope some folks watch it!

He was a 35th-round draft pick out of Niagara University and he's been in the minors for 12 seasons; he'll be 32 years old next month. So yeah, quite a moment.

In a similar vein, post-Soto the Nationals called up 1st baseman/outfielder Joey Meneses, a 30-year old career minor leaguer, who was signed at 19, and is on his 4th major league affiliation. From his AAA numbers, it looks like he may have done enough before to warrant at least a MLB cup of coffee, but it apparently didn’t work out for him. He’s becoming a bit of a story since he’s hitting .400/.447/.829, with 5 HR, good for a 1.276 OPS and 259 OPS+, in his first 10 games & 38 PA. Might not last, but good for the no-longer a kid.

These kind of posts should be banned because … my keyboard isn’t waterproof!
