2011 csd Custom – Keon Broxton
That last card of Minor League Monday is of South Bend Silverhawks centefielder Keon Broxton. He is a very talented player that appears to be very close to finding that little extra that takes him over the edge. He led all of professional baseball last year in triples with 19. He can flat out fly. Sunday he legged out yet another triple on a simple ball hit into the gap. He can field and throw, so why is he back in low A ball? I think it comes down to the fact that he needs to work on a few things before he can get where he needs to be.
I took the picture on the front of this card Sunday as Keon was getting warmed up before the first game of a doubleheader. I wanted to get a picture of the retro uniforms the team was wearing on a card. I normally would not settle for such a boring picture this early in the year, but I have seen Keon play a lot, and he should be the first Silverhawk in the set. The background picture for the card also came Sunday. I thought the new scoreboard would look nice. In the future I will have a picture of the completed stadium, but for now the scoreboard will do.
