Chris Wallace's two-run homer in the 9th inning last night was estimated by the Albany Times-Union at 480 feet. Jeebus.

“Anybody would be lying if they said they didn’t prefer to be working in the big leagues. But if you can’t work in the big leagues … I have to admit that it is nice to have the opportunity to kind of start the development of a lot of these kids through pro ball.”

“Retire and play golf in Myrtle Beach. I’m starting to make that happen right now. Bought a place there last year. … But certainly I can wait a little bit longer.”
