It was interesting, as always, to hear the kids ask Josh Reddick a few questions during the Mustang hitting camp. What’s even better is to hear Reddick and current minor leaguer JB Wendelken talk about what it’s like to be in the minors.
Reddick and Wendelken backed up the age-old stories of the long bus rides in the minors and Reddick even talked about the perils of getting a window seat. If you are not on the aisle, you really don’t get to stretch out, since it’s two to a row because of all the players, coaches and support staff riding together. And the bus rides are a part of life throughout most of the minors.
The longer you’re in the game, the more seniority you build up and you might get a row all to yourself. Now, in the big leagues, it’s almost exclusively plane travel, but even there, seniority rules when it comes to picking seats and space.
We’ll have more on Effingham County’s two pro ball players coming up and pictures from the annual hitting camp.
