Interesting article in the Grand Forks Herald about the only two players from North Dakota to get back-to-back hits in a Major League game: Darin Erstad and Chris Coste.
It's a good long article, but worth noting is Coste's reaction to 2009, and its effect on 2010:
"I know I still have it, but whether another team next year believes that, we’ll see. I’ll squeeze out a few more years, hopefully, but having said that, if I don’t pick it up a little this month, it could easily be my last year and not by my choice. But as long as the phone rings and somebody wants me and hopefully it’s Houston, I’ll always give it a try until my body says it’s time to go."
