Leatherman In 2008

Stan Goldberg of The Frederick News-Post reports on Dan Leatherman’s success in 2008:

WALKERSVILLE’S Dan Leatherman had an outstanding year as a relief pitcher with the Hagerstown Suns and his season is not over. The right-hander was called up to Potomac for the Carolina League playoffs.

It didn’t take him long to see his first action. He pitched the final four innings and got the win as the Nationals beat Wilmington 2-1 in 15 innings in the first game of the Northern Division Playoffs last Wednesday. Leatherman — who was signed by the Nationals after being released by the Minnesota Twins organization during spring training — allowed just two hits, struck out two and didn’t walk a batter. Potomac swept Wilmington and will next play in the Mills Cup Playoffs.

At Hagerstown, Leatherman was 1-2 with a 2.68 ERA in 26 games. He had five saves.

hey, i was wondering what kind of expenses you face as an mlb agent? do you provide equipment for all 4 of your clients or is that an expense that your clients incur? great blog by the way

We do provide equipment. It would be tough as a young and growing agency to say no, when our competitors are providing their clients with items of need. As our clients move up the ranks, we will be more actively searching for equipment deals.
