Sandel To Edmonton: When the Courier News’ Ryan Dunleavy initially reported that former Somerset Patriots INF George Sandel was working on a contract with the Northern League’s Edmonton Cracker Cats, I still believed that he’d end up in either Lancaster or York.
I’d spoken with Sandel about a month ago, and the energetic infielder said he was in talks with the two Pennsylvania ballclubs, as well as Somerset. It also seemed to appear that he’d be returning to Somerset.
So, I was still surprised to see that Sandel officially signed a deal with Edmonton yesterday.
He never really put up anything remotely close to big numbers while with the Patriots, but was still a very popular player in the clubhouse and a good guy by all accounts.
I’m going to try give him a call again in the next couple days and see what led him to heading to the opposite corner of the continent. – Ashmore
