First Week

Hey guys,

So far I have been having an awesome time in the AFL. The Scottsdale Scorpions have got off to a little bit of a rocky start, we are currently 3-5, but I feel like the team is starting to mesh and our best ball is ahead of us. A couple differences have really jumped out between the AFL season and the regular minor league season. Number one, the opposing pitchers usually only throw one or two innings, so you might have four at bats against four different pitchers, whereas in season you might get two or three at bats against the starter. Also, the schedule is very different. During the season you have games pretty much everyday for 6 months, but here we have every Sunday off. Definitely nice to get that break, especially where some guys have already played 140+ games this season. Although things are a bit different out here I think I am starting to get adjusted to how things work and what the routine is like out here. During the games I have felt good, and have just been working on getting my rythm and timing back. I think hitting is mostly just timing and confidence and I am starting to feel better in those areas, after having nearly a month off between the end of my regular season and the beginning of the AFL season. Well, that’s all I have for now, if you guys have any questions, please feel free to ask away. I will do my best to answer as quickly as possible. Take care.
