Hickory tonight

Hey guys, I’ll be taking a run over to Hickory tonight to see the Crawdads take on the Rome Braves.

These are two of the more talented squads in the Sally and I’m looking forward to the matchup. This will be my 2nd look at Hickory and my 1st at Rome.

On the mound for Rome is high profile pitcher Mike Soroka, age 18, he’s listed 6’4″ 195 lbs, he bats and throws right.  Soroka was drafted 28th overall in the 2015 draft out of high school in Calgary, Alberta, Cn.  Soroka is off to a very good start in 2016.

Pitching for Hickory will be Jonathan Hernandez, age 19, he’s listed 6’2″ 175 lbs, bats and throws right.  Hernandez was signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2013.

Some of the Rome hitters I’ll be looking forward to seeing include:

CF) Ronald Acuna

3B) Austin Riley

1B) Juan Yepez


and Some the Crawdads I’m excited to see include:

SS) Yeyson Yrizzari

3B) Ti’Quan Forbes

CF) Eric Jenkins

The game starts 6:05 and should be a good one.  I’ll be live Tweeting throughout the game @AshevilleSoxFan and I’ll be doing a 1st impression write up for Ronald Acuna. I’ll also be writing about Ti’Quan Forbes, Eric Jenkins and SP Mike Soroka over the weekend. Cheers
