The Florida Marlins drafted a family member of mine today in the 40th round. none other than my brother in law Eric Basurto! He is rows in the mid 90's. The Marlins called a few weeks ago and had him fill out some paperwork so I don't think it was a surprise but still, esciting!. If he decides to join the team, I expect him to climb the ranks quickly, as long as he can stay healthy (he has broken his had twice this year).

On a sadder note, a good friend of mine went undrafted today. It surprises me because I have never seen a more gifted naturl baseball player. Foks is a guy, who when we played in high school, took Dontrelle Willis deep. He played college ball for Loyola Maramount and is an all around great guy. Oh well, I guess the scouts didn't see what seemingly everyone else did.

Anyhow, I just wanted to say congrats to Eric and hopefully this is a start of something big for him that I can mooch off of! :lol:

that broken hand probably cost him some cash as he went so late in the draft...

I know a little something about him.....

Eric Basurto 6-3 202 lbs. RHP. Chabot Col.

No wind up. Good 3/4 delivery. Plus velocity potential. Consistent 88-91 fastball. Table curve. Developing Slider with some bite. Cutter potential. Cutter is best out pitch. Good base.

Congrates to your Bro-in-law. Make sure you tell him to never give up on his dreams and keep on fighting.
