I was watching the College World Series on ESPN this past weekend when they had an interview with Cal State Fullerton pitcher Thomas Eshelman. I was extremely impressed with the young pitcher as he talked about the college world series and the upcoming draft. In my mind I thought "Wow! It would be great if the Astros drafted him so I could watch him pitch this summer (with the Tri-City ValleyCats)." Eshelman just seemed like a great kid and someone who you'd want to root for.

Here's an article from SB Nation about Eshelman, including a video of him pitching.
This would be a great addition to the ValleyCats roster and a great opportunity for fans to see a potential major league player in the making.
