Ryne Sandberg at 5th3rd

Ryne Sandberg Signs Autographs

Rhino signs autographs before the game. I met Sandberg when he was here in 2003 for the All-Star Game. Thrill of a lifetime.

The Whitecaps win 7-3!

COMSTOCK PARK – Gorkys Hernandez and James Skelton hit back-to-back home runs as the Whitecaps jumped out to a 7-0 lead on the way to a 7-3 victory over Peoria.

For the second start in a row, Matt O’Brien pitched more than seven innings and earned the victory. He allowed all three Chiefs runs in 7.2 innings of work and earned the win to improve to 5-2.

Hernandez finished 3-for-4 and by the end of the fourth inning had two doubles, the home run and three runs scored.

My main man Gorkys (now that Deik went to Lakeland) before the game. This kid is one to watch.
