I had a short day today at the complex. I only had about half an hour to spend so I did a quick tour to se what was going on before setting in to watch BP on Ashburn Field.
Pat Gillick was visiting today an was standing next to the batting cage chatting with the players as they took their swings.
Tyson Gillies talked to Gillick for a few moments then stepped up to the plate. He hit not one but two balls right out of Ashburn Field. The first of which was a beauty, a long arching ball that looked like it could have gone on forever.
Afterwards, Gillies talked with a pleased-looking Gillick. It looks like Tyson was able to hit with the pressure of Gillick looking on. There was no better time to strike the long ball and Tyson took full advantage of it.
I was really pleased to see him do well and I hope that he continues at the level so he can make the big show.
