According to the latest reports, the above photo is one you won’t see much in 2010. It’s former Greenville Drive player Casey Kelly holding a bat.
The Web site SoxProspects says Kelly, who insisted on playing half a year as pitcher and half as shortstop in 2009, has elected to concentrate on pitching in his effort to make it to the majors. Says the site: “While the Sox brass undoubtedly preferred Kelly choose to continue his career on the mound, they ultimately left the decision to Kelly himself.”
Kelly was a lights-out pitcher for the Drive in the first half of the season, and a good, but not great, shortstop the rest of the year.
Sounds like a wise move. But these photos are now outdated . . .
