Former University of Louisville All-American Chris Dominguez is taking full advantage of his time playing for the Triple A Louisville Bats, attending games and practices at his former school whenever the schedule allows.
"It's awesome," he said. "It's been great for me. It's been a blessing.
"Being able to come down here and watch a few practices and games, it's been great."
Picked up by the Cincinnati during the off season, Dominguez made the Reds opening day roster, but is currently an every day player for the Bats.
A member of the Cardinals first trip to the College World Series in 2007, the Miami native isn't that surprised by the impressive season that the current squad is having as it aims for a third consecutive visit to Omaha.
"It's been like that ever since I came here," he said. "Every year we continue to get better as a program."
Currently ranked as high as No.3 in the nation, Dominguez believes that head coach Dan McDonnell has built a program that, "rivals any program out there."
