The Astros will have a new baseball complex ready for the Dominican Summer League season in 2010.
“The new complex is a huge step forward in our player development process. The facility will allow us to further the on-field development of our young Latin players along with giving us the opportunities to enhance their diets and provide them with English lessons that will allow them to function at a higher level when they move along the development chain in the United States.”
This is one of the most important - and least understood - facets of player development. And in light of closing the Venezuelan academy over the winter, this should be encouraging to all of us.
So let me ask you, after almost two years on the job. Do you approve, or disapprove, of Ed Wade's general management?
