Son got drafted pretty late by Tampa Bay. He loved playing the complex league, went back for fall instructional, and then was booted out (thank goodness) of Port Charlotte on Monday before Ian hit.
Now he's back in Iowa, planning to work out over the winter with several former teammates now in pro ball who also have returned to campus for winter workouts. Rays have said no throwing for a couple of weeks, but have provided a lifting program.
Knowing nothing in baseball is permanent or necessarily predictable, what comes next? What should we be prepared for as next season gets closer? Thoughts on good Christmas gifts? Should he take a car to Florida next spring? What's the experience been for others and what can we do as parents do to be supportive as he heads into the unknown?
