Farmstros Call of the Week- #1
My plan is to have the CALL OF THE WEEK be a new feature on Farmstros throughout the 2012 season. With the cooperation of the affiliates' broadcasters, I hope to bring you audio of a top play from the previous week of action in the Astros' farm system.
The highlight of week #1 came on opening night in Adelanto, California, where Lancaster was playing High Desert. The Astros' 2011 #1 draft pick George Springer came to the plate in the top of 6th inning with the JetHawks trailing 7-3. On a 3-2 pitch, Springer came through with a two-out grand slam to tie the game and get the season of following the Astros of the Future off to an excellent start.
The audio came from High Desert's announcer William Calvert and is used with permission.
