Mizzou Baseball alumni

Brock Bond of the Salem-Keizer volcanoes is featured in a write-up by a local sportswriter obsessed with his last name.

I received an e-mail from John Shinn, an agent who used to hang around Taylor Stadium a lot. He wants us to know that
- Travis Wendte was a South Atlantic League All-Star this year and he was promoted to Hi A Brevard County and is doing extremely well.
- Cody Ehlers has turned it around and is has been doing well for AA Trenton Thunder.
- Brad Flanders is now the catching and pitching coach at Texarkana JC in Texas.

And finally, at, Mark Alexander reflects on numerous road trips to play the Carolina Mudcats: "It beats Huntsville, where you're in the middle of nowhere," he said. "Plus, last year, we held our fantasy football draft at a bar in Raleigh and had a lot of fun with it. And with three big colleges around there, you can always find stuff to do, but hopefully nothing that gets you in too much trouble."
