Weather preventing the ValleyCats from seeing their families

An interesting note was brought up by Albany Times-Union reporter Bryan Fitzgerald on the schedule for some Astros prospects after two straight postponements in the NYPL Championship:

Most of the players, many of whom are away from home for an extended period of time for the first time, figured they'd be home with their family and friends by now.

Instead, 10 of the ValleyCats may have to report directly to the Florida instructional league once the season ends.

Chris Wallace:
"It's frustrating, but there's nothing we can do about it."

Telvin Nash:
"We're all kind of upset. But Mother Nature, she has another thing for us though. I always grew up in a big family. When you play baseball, you have to miss out on all the dinners and events and stuff. If you want to make it to the big leagues, that's what you gotta go through."

I can vouch for Telvin's big family. The night he was awarded the MVP in G'ville, he had atleast 12-15 people there in the stands to see it.
