The other day I played golf with a former pitcher who was also a football player in high school. He was signed by the Astro's. He spent about nine years in the minors. He is from a small town just outside of Gainesville with a population of around 2500. He said there were at least four better athletes than he was who never got a shot anywhere at anything. His quote, "I was very, very lucky to have been in the right place at the right time." There are so many great athletes in the state who get overlooked."
