A few notes for Friday afternoon:
- Former Mariners owner Hiroshi Yamauchi passed away on Thursday. He deserves credit for saving the franchise.
- John McGrath has a column on Yamauchi.
- While in Detroit, Ryan Divish caught up with former Rainiers infielder/outfielder Matt Tuiasosopo.
- The fastest man in the minors has reached the majors – and Billy Hamilton is nearly impossible to throw out stealing. Great piece from Baseball America.
- Tucson General Manager Mike Feder was named PCL Executive Of The Year.
- The New York Times ran a scathing take-down of Yankees announcer John Sterling. Yikes!
Enjoy the weekend!
