And, for Lake County, shortstop Mark Thompson was 2-for-4 with 2RBI.
- Infielder Rodney Choy Foo has retired. I had heard this last week and forgot to mention it. Supposedly, he went back to Hawaii and is going to (try to) play football for the University of Hawaii.
- Yesterday was a camp day, and supposedly the entire Indians staff got together after practice to make some final decisions on cuts and assignments. Some more cuts could be coming sometime today (Thursday).
- Just an FYI, next week I will have in-depth previews for each of the four ful-season affiliates Buffalo, Akron, Kinston and Lake County. Buffalo should post Tuesday, Akron Wednesday, Kinston Friday and Lake County on Saturday. On Thursday, I plan to post me first Minor Happenings of the season.
- I am done sorting all the pictures I took while I was in Winter Haven, and now am in the process of uploading them all. I will post a link to a photo gallery sometime in the next few days. I will also have some new video to share that I shot at camp.
