2015-10-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thanks for the chat Josh. Did you get a chance to see Bradenton in the FSL this year? If so, were there any standout players?
(jsdspud from My Desk)
Yes I did, Scott Elarton was their pitching coach which was a thrill for me because I first met him as a fan when he played for Kissimmee. They were loaded, cant comment on non clients. User specific chat! (Joshua Kusnick)
