Second time's a charm for Indy vet Darian Sandford

By: Devon Teeple

Back in 2012, Darian Sandford made history. In 2017, Sandford made history again becoming one of a handful of players who has signed a professional MLB contract for the second time out of Independent baseball. 

And don’t get me wrong, with the amount of information out there and the abilities of athletes in this day in age, it takes a lot to impress people. And that’s what Sandford’s done over and over again.

As a member of the Southern Illinois Miners and Washington WildThings, he stole 71 bases, a Frontier League Record (2012). The Chicago White Sox took notice and signed him to a minor league deal. Heck, how could you not?

Drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the 47th round of the 2010 MLB June Amateur Draft out of Park University, this marked Sandford’s second stint in affiliated professional baseball. His first two seasons saw him spend time in the Arizona League and Rookie League where he put up good numbers, but nowhere near what he’s been doing the past few seasons.


Is Wilin Rosario the next Eric Thames?

By: Devon Teeple

It doesn’t matter what Eric Thames does for the rest of the year, he’s proven everybody wrong. No one wanted him, so he did what he had to do and went overseas and created a legend.

Next up is former Colorado Rockies catcher Wilin Rosario.

Rosario spent five years with the Rockies and put up some great numbers. In 2012, his rookie season, he batted .270 with 28 home runs and 71 RBI; good enough for fourth in ROY voting. The next season he hit .292 with 21 homers and 79 RBI.


Natan Levy's journey won't end till he's a champion

By: Devon Teeple

With international victories in tournaments all over the world and over 30,000 followers on social media, Natan Levy's name is becoming one you hear about in all the fight circles. Now he has three MMA wins under his belt and Levy is building a worldwide following like no other. 

Not everyone can step into the MMA game and be instantly credible. It's not about putting on gloves and throwing haymakers. It takes years and years of training and not just in one discipline. You must be extraordinary in multiple facets and that's what Levy is trying to do.

From a young age, he trained in Karate until he saw MMA and was instantly hooked. He's working his way up the ranks and not taking anything for granted. Levy wants to be great and he will make sure he takes advantage of every opportunity brought forward!

By: Devon Teeple

Jarret Martin was having an All-Star calibre season with the York Revolution of the Atlantic League. His season was so good that the San Francisco Giants signed him to a minor league contract. He will start his Giants career at Double-A Richmond.
