  • I don’t want to jump the gun here but I think we finally got our first GOOD draft pick in 3 years (and second ever?) in Takayama! Lots of failures in the D1 position for the Tigers historically…

      Takayama has been a lot of fun to watch. I was pretty excited when I thought the Swallows drafted him last year. I think he’s going to be fine.
