From the Florida Collegiate League website:
"Jimenez, Ezekiel Show Power on All Star Day"
"Jimenez finished third in the Home Run Derby. Lightning teammate Joe Ezekiel (Lafayette College) won it, 7-5, over Steve Sabins (Oklahoma State), a Winter Park Diamond Dawg."
"In an intriguing twist, Ezekiel wasn’t even on the All Star roster. According to him, Viola asked if Ezekiel wanted to participate and he said yes."
"He has amazing power," Viola said of Ezekiel. "We’d like to transfer it from batting practice to games."
I was at the game and Joe launched some moonshots that are still going.
Proud Mom and Dad were in the stands and received high fives from all the Leesburg Lightening fans as well as quite a few others. His future looks bright and should have a banner year next year at Lafayette.
BTW, the Viola being quoted is Joe's coach and former Cy Young winner Frank Viola.
Congrats jmepop and MOM.
