Cody's Corner - August 20, 2006

Cody Haerther, Springfield left fielder and's fifth-ranked prospect in the Cardinals system prior to the season, posts regular reports on life in the minor leagues throughout the 2006 campaign.

For this edition of Cody's Corner, I reached Springfield Cardinals outfielder Cody Haerther in Frisco on Sunday afternoon before heading to the ballpark for the evening contest against the Roughriders.

Cody reviews his strong second half and what he changes he made to enable it, updates several injured players on the Springfield roster, notes others playing well and closes with an update on his younger brother Casey, who was drafted by San Diego in the 34th round of the June draft out of high school in California and is either going to sign with the Padres or attend UCLA starting next month.


As always, Haerther will entertain readers' questions this season, so please email them to me at the address below. We will try to include as many of them as possible in future installments of Cody's Corner here at
