Craig Brazell

Craig Brazell is a young man that worked at the plant with me several years ago. I didn't know him that well, because he was just a summer hire, but I remember him being a very self-confident kid. He wasn't arrogant, but you could tell he expected to do great things in his life. When he made it up to the majors, it was clear he would. He was starting 1st baseman for the New York Mets, and played in 24 games during the 2004 season. He did very well, but returned to AAA ball where he consistently bats .300 or close to it.

I work with a guy who is friends with Craig's dad. He gave me the card this morning, so I figured I'd blog it. Click the stats pic for more details on Craig's career.
