What was the most surprising difference between Conference play and non-Conference play when you made the jump?

    Outside of the creepy small hands he has and the funny way he talks the dude can hit! Good guy, good teammate, and have watched him play a lot of positions really well. Any team would be better with him. Good luck buddy.

  3. Shaw says:

    Pat is one of my all time favorite hitters. He knows the strike zone better than anyone including the homeplate umpire. Hits for power and can hit for high average when he has to keep it down. Great teammate as well.

    Glad to call this guy a friend of mine. Awesome person here and a team leader.
