Most were right, as his stint with the Red Sox did not last long and he got cut from some other pro and independent ball clubs during his journey.
He got picked up in…

Most every athlete will undergo some type of labeling that can affect his confidence.After a while people start to notice each players strenghts and weakness's as players.
