Álex Cabrera "El Samurai" signs with the Wingnuts

Internationally, Álex Cabrera is one of the most dangerous hitters in recent memory. Cabrera started his career back in 1991 at 19. His stint in Wichita will be his first baseball in America since he donned the Arizona Diamondbacks uniform in 2000. In his 31 MLB games, he batted .263 with 5 home runs and 14 RBI. According to the American Association, in his first at bat he hit a home run. When you take a look at his minor league numbers, they're as good as anyone's. In 2000, the same year he made his major league debut, he split time between RK, AA, and AAA. In 76 games, El Samurai batted .353 with 39 home runs and drove in 94. He slugged .851 and posted a 1.251 OPS. After his stint with the D-Backs, Cabrera spent 12 seasons in Japan playing for three different clubs. reports that Cabrera, who is entering his 22nd year in professional baseball, has hit over 450 home runs, driven in over 1,270 and amassed 1,861 hits.

ECBL looking to bring baseball back to local fans

By: Devon Teeple

Colin Cummins knows a little something about baseball.

A former independent league player, Cummins understands how hard it is to get to that next level. He's played college ball in the US at County College of Randolph Morris and played professionally in the Independent Frontier League for the Johnstown Steal (Frontier League Champions '95) Springfield Capitals and Evansville Otters. Cummins is also a teacher of the game. Since 1998, he's been helping kids improve their ability along with their knowledge of the game as Director of Operations at Red Eye Baseball.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Cummins, the League Director of the East Coast Baseball League, who hopes to bring the game back to an area that is rich in baseball history.

With hardwork come great rewards.

I have been running The GM's Perspective for a number of years and the site continues to grow and expand. What started out as strictly a baseball news provider has begun to evolve into something more. I have been blessed to be able speak with a great number of athletes and personalities who have let me get a glimpse of their world. To be able to see what these people can do outside the arena of sports to help their communities and society is really something special.
