Kid Hit By Bat Recovering, Getting Goodies: The 7-year-old boy hit by Josh Pressley’s bat last night is apparently getting better and was to receive a call from Pressley. The Patriots are also signing some items for the kid, so it’s good to see this was handled the right way.
I think I mentioned this happening last night…and the bat was coming in at a pretty good rate of speed. It just got over the dugout and seemed to ricochet around in the seats a little bit.
SignedBorn: The Lancaster Barnstormers have signed P Chris Steinborn to a contract. He will start for the club on Friday.
He has pitched for both the Road Warriors and Revolution in the Atlantic League, and went 8-14 with a 6.13 ERA for York last year. – MA
Another Man’s Treasure: The Long Island Ducks have inked DH Kyle Nichols. Nichols has spent the past three months with three different organizations, the Ducks being his fourth. Interesting. – Scott Stanchak
