2011 csd Preview – Tyler Spillner
I will be gone today in West Lafayette for a couple of things. One of those things though will be seeing the Purdue Boilermakers play baseball for the first time this season. I thought that I could release a couple of my preview cards today since any card I make with this year’s pictures will go in the regular set.
The first of those players that I will release is Tyler Spillner. I don’t follow Purdue baseball closely enough to know too much about the players. I only know what I can gather from the few games that I attend each season. Last year I saw Tyler make a great catch crashing into the left field wall during a game against Penn State. This is not a padded wall like you see in professional ball. It is a hard wood wall. He made the catch, bounced off the wall, and got the ball back into the infield. I know that it couldn’t have felt too good, but he got the ball back in. I have a picture of him throwing the ball into the infield that I put on my 2010 custom card.
