Heading into 2017, I was really looking forward to watching Trent Giambrone play every day at South Bend. The 2016 25th round draft pick out of Delta State was an essential part of the Eugene Emeralds’ championship run that same year. He played all four positions in the infield while hitting .292 with 4 home runs and 22 RBI in 51 games. He quickly became one of my favorite players on the team by putting together great at-bats, going the other way, and never gettin cheated at the plate.
Much to my surprise, he was nowhere to be found at South Bend when rosters were announced this spring. Instead, he had skipped a level to Myrtle Beach. It’s been an interesting season for him, filled with lows and highs alike . I had the great fortune to talk with Giambrone about his season and how he has made adjustments to a new level.
Cubs fans, this is it. This is what we’ve all been waiting for our entire lives. The moment is here. The Cubs play game one of the 2016 World Series tonight against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio. Man, it’s fun writing that!
