This is one of those blog posts I hate to write. This summer I was fortunate to get to know Gulf Coast League pitcher Tanner Keist and his family.
They are nice people and I enjoyed talking with them. That’s what makes today hard. Tanner Keist was released this weekend.
Some say it’s “the nature of the beast” that so many guys will not continue on, but it still stings when one of the kids you know are let go.
I wish Tanner and his family all the best and hope he gets picked up soon.
