Seattle Mariners’ Prospect – Nick Franklin

In 2006, I met Nick Franklin.  His dad contacted me and asked for a hitting lesson.  I had no idea what kind of player he was.  It didn't take long to find out!  Nick is the first kid I have ever give hitting lessons to as a youngster and had the chance to manage against in professional baseball.  He was a student of mine for many years, and still from time to time, we meet up for a tune up.  He has a pretty good feel for what he is doing these days!  Nick has always been a gifted athlete who could make adjustments on the fly.  He loves the game and plays it the right way.  I am looking forward to watching him play in the major leagues for a long time.  Very proud of him.

    HI Andy/all:
    I’m not receiving e-mail about the location of the practices on Tuesday night, but I DO receive some from BPA. The most recent was the notification for tryouts for the !7U-16U-14U Summer team. Can someone double check to ensure that steven.g.connell@gmail.com is on the distribution?
