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.
