Fenway Parks catches baseball fans’ attention
A high school junior from Spanish River Community, Fla., made headlines after being wooed by colleges in North Carolina, Mississippi, and Nebraska for his baseball accolades. The talent is reportedly there, but what makes his most famous is more than serendipity.
His name? Fenway Parks.
Parks is listed at 6-foot-1, 195 lbs., and is a potential second or third baseman, according to PerfectGame.org. Here’s the most recent bio of Parks on the site:
“Strong compact build, fairly mature physically, looks 5-11/190. Right handed hitter, good strength, some stiffness in swing but creates very good bat speed, hard line drive contact in games, showed ability to lift and pull the ball in BP, has hitting tools and a feel for hitting. Third base look and profile, has arm strength with on line carry, good hands and balance at the ball, solid defensive actions, quickness and agility will be a question at second base but bat would be big plus at that position.”
High expectations may unravel a promising youngster from jumping out of the proverbial baseball haystack. So give the kid time to grow, time to play and time to love the game even more before lumping him with impact players.
Still, Fenway Parks has a nice ring to it.
