Not being drafted can have an impact on your psyche

The Albany Times-Union has an article on Tri-City's undrafted players, such as Neiko Johnson, Garrett Bullock, and Ryan McCurdy.

Johnson:
"That kind of makes you want to work harder just to show you're really good. You could have been drafted, but it didn't happen. You still have the opportunity."

Bullock:
"They (the teams) don't have nearly as much invested in you, so in the game and off-the-field stuff, you definitely have to be beyond and above everybody else to move up,"

It won't be a problem, says manager Stubby Clapp:
"Everybody's going to get an opportunity here. When his number is called, I hope he performs."
