I looked for the clip and could not find anything but having been to Coast League games unless family was there no one would be there to video. Sadly, I've been to many where there were less than 10 fans for both teams combined. They play on back fields that look like softball complex with seating for a middle school girl's soccer match. We watched one of my guys a couple of times and he said there were 2 old men who came to every game and other than that unless parents showed up there was no one except maybe a few cleat chasers every now and then or kids from the neighborhood because it was free.

Yes, when I saw it was an FCL game I knew the odds were long there was a video. Generally not advertised, no PA, no nothing. It’s got all the bells and whistles of a pick up game (in other words, nothing) but with real good players and mediocre/bad umps on a nice field.

After that, I think the next move up would be to Asheville, but season is starting to wind down so might not make it.
What are the chances he goes straight to Ashville?

On a side note, I haven't seen Astro fans as excited about a draft pick as this in a long, long time.

With the minor league realignment, Asheville is now High A. I guess it’s possible, but don’t know. I think Zach Daniels may be there.

Vols in the Pros: The Dog Days of Summer


August 05, 2022
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – As Vols from across the country continue to perform in the professional ranks, a new class of pros are just getting their start.

Drew Gilbert homered in his first at-bat with the FCL Astros while Jordan Beck had a hit with the ACL Rockies. In other places, Zach Daniels has swung a hot stick for the Asheville Tourists.

Then on Thursday, August 11, Nick Senzel's Reds face Yan Gomes' Cubs in the MLB Field of Dreams game.
