Cardinals 2012 AFL interviews: Mike O'Neill

In our continuing series of interviews with St. Louis Cardinals prospects competing in the Arizona Fall League, we speak with outfielder Mike O'Neill.

Outfielder Mike O'Neill had a fantastic 2012 season that is continuing in the Arizona Fall League. Earlier, the 24-year-old won the Florida State League batting title with a .342 average. He added another 100 points of on-base percentage on top of it.

O'Neill
O'Neill was an FSL mid-season and post-season all-star and amazingly hit even better the final three weeks of the regular season upon his promotion to Double-A Springfield. The outfielder then helped lead his new club to the Texas League title.

I spoke with O'Neill about his great year, including the rare feat of winning back-to-back Player of the Month awards across the entire Cardinals system – in July and August.
