woohoo!!

This is John Hattig Jr. He's the first guy from Guam to make play Major League Baseball ... that's right, he's in The Show, playing for the Toronto Blue Jays. He's a switch-hitting third baseman who just got called up a few weeks ago.

Here's the story from the news wires today:
SEATTLE (AP) -- Gregg Zaun hit a grand slam during a nine-run fourth inning and also had a solo home run, leading A.J. Burnett and the Toronto Blue Jays over the Seattle Mariners 10-0 Wednesday.

John Hattig, who last month became the first player from Guam in the major leagues, hit a three-run double for his first career RBIs.
He's now hitting 6 for 13, for an average of .462 ... for those of you who don't know baseball, this is GOOD!!

Yeehaw!!

This means there's a good chance he'll be on SportsCenter or Baseball Tonight this evening/early morning and that Guam will be mentioned ... cross your fingers! LOL

Hey, I'm making a habit of being first. In fact I am batting .0034, in being first on your blog comments. For those that know blogging, this is not good.

Congrats on the Guam player, that is very, very cool. Hopehe sticks around for a long time and has an awesome career. As I say everyday to my son, GO GUAM!!
