2011 csd Preview – Justin Upton
Justin is another big leaguer that spent time in South Bend with the Silverhawks. He came to South Bend as a #1 pick, and had some heavy expectations on him. At first I didn’t think that he was all that great, but he quickly started to show exactly what he could do. He has shown flashes of that in the majors, but still has yet to play like I think he can. If he can do that he will be among the best.
This picture was taken last May as Justin was rounding the bases after a home run against the Cubs. Justin was one of the reasons that I went to the game. It is always nice to see players in the majors that you watched early in their careers.
