    Someone should give Grant a shot. As coach for Rip City I saw him make some sick defensive plays consistently in tough situations. And like he said, not many shortstops can also hit it 400 ft. If someone gives him a shot he won’t disappoint. Good luck G

    I’m very glad to pick up Grant for Compound Athletics inaugural season. He will be playing SS for us this year. With him and Messer should be a fun season watching the turns.
