Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

CT roster starting to take shape...

From the Detroit News:

"Detroit— There's a new Kaline in the Tigers organization.

Colin Kaline, selected in the 26th round of the draft last week, has signed a contract, taken a physical and will soon be doing what his Hall of Fame grandfather, Al, never had to do — play minor league baseball.

"He's absolutely thrilled," Al Kaline said Sunday. "He signed right away, went down to Lakeland for his physical and is headed to Connecticut.

"Now I have to figure out a way to go see him play."

An infielder who graduated from Florida Southern College, Colin Kaline will report to the Single A Connecticut Tigers of the New York-Penn League. "

The opener is Friday.

One of his teammates will be Patrick Leyland, son of Tigers manager Jim Leyland.

At Florida Southern, Kaline won an award for being the top male scholar-athlete with a 3.61 grade-point average. His major was human movement and performance.

Was able to meet a vast majority of the team today. Looks like we have a real solid squad. A lot of pitchers for now. King from KSU, Westlake and Casili from Vandy, as well as McCann that I know of. Texas Longhorns SS as well. I'll have more after practice tomorrow afternoon.
