Wife finds a couple Missouri articles about Lamb

August 1, 2010

Orange County, CA – Following an early morning game in the dugout with a Connie Mack age team from Orange County with the kid we are hosting from Florida, John Valek, III, my wife jumped on the Internet. My wife found a couple of nice articles about John Lamb and last night’s game. We already know the results from his debut against the Springfield Cardinals, but it is always nice to see some positive comments about his performance.   

One of the clips from an article by Kary Booher, that helped me smile, was quote from the Naturals manager Brian Poldberg about his new left-handed outing in Springfield in front of this year’s largest crowd. Manager Poldberg said, “I’m anxious to see him five days from now. He showed some presence out there. He went after guys.”   

The other articles she found can be viewed in their entirety by clicking on the photos below that were taken by a family friend that lives in Springfield, MO area.

Now that John has been nudged off the Minor League Baseball ERA leader board by his Texas League debut and now sits in the second spot, trailing by a mere 0.05, we are all eager to see him throw at his new home field, just like his new Manager.   

The Northwest Arkansas Naturals split tonight’s twin bill by winning the first game and losing the second. Next game is tomorrow night at 8:10 ET with yet another lefty from the Kansas City Royals farm, Danny Duffy, making his Class AA debut.
