In an interview with the Northwest Herald, we get a spotlight on Tri-City LF Jake Goebbert:
“Getting paid to play baseball still hasn’t set in yet. I don’t have to worry about homework or anything else. It’s all about baseball. I’m really enjoying it. It’s everything I’ve dreamed about.”
And propers to Bobby Heck and his staff:
“The Astros had been in contact with me since October. They showed a lot of credibility. That made the decision to sign a lot easier. This is a one-time opportunity, and I want to make the most of it.
Goebbert is presently 5x25 with 2XBH and 2RBI, with a .200/.259/.320 line through eight games.
