Thought this was pretty cool…Jiwan James said by the time he got back in the locker room after the clincher on Saturday, he had already received a congratulatory text message from Anthony Gose.
Last year, the last out of the championship clincher was a pop-up to second base, caught by Harold Garcia. Before the party started, Garcia hid the ball in his glove to make sure he didn’t lose it.
This year, like in 2006 when Matt Thayer did it, Leandro Castro, caught up in the excitement, threw the ball into the air and who knows who has it now.
BlueClaws players are gone, either headed to Florida for the Instructional League or home. Josh Zeid gets a week at home before going to Florida to tune up for the Arizona Fall League, which opens in two weeks. We’ll have plenty up AFL updates again this year.
