Dynasty Athlete Representation

4/11/09 News & Notes

Baseball season is off and running.  The Minor League affiliates of MLB teams started their seasons a little bit later than their big league clubs, and most teams have only played two games at this point.  None of our Dynasty boys saw any action on the first day of the season, but Kyle Gunderson and Pete Parise got some playing time on Day 2.

Kyle Gunderson and Pete Parise were the only pitchers on their respective teams to give up no runs in their match-ups last night.  For Gunderson, it is his first season starting at High A.  Parise made his first pitch ever in a AA outfit.

Gunderson came in for the Potomac Nationals in the 9th inning.  He pitched the entire inning, giving up no runs, walks, or hits.  His team lost 14-7.

Parise helped end the 5th inning and pitched a full 6th inning while giving up no runs, 1 walk, and 2SO.  Springfield got no run support and lost the game 10-0.

Congrats to our men for starting off the year strong!
