Danville, VA - The American Sports Network this week featured an article I wrote about two Navy pitchers, Stephen Moore and Mitch Harris. Harris completed his service obligation with the Navy and worked his way up to the St. Louis Cardinals after spending two years in their farm system. Moore's story is just the opposite. He worked a brief stint with the Danville Braves this summer following graduation and before heading into his service tour.
One man has completed a nearly impossible journey to the bigs and the latter is poised to attempt it.
