Minor League Links - April 15- April 21

As we noted in our first column we are going to focus on the feature articles not the game stories that appear in the local papers. Usually the practice if for each beat writer to turn in a "feature" once a week to go along with their daily game reports. As you will find out some are a little slower than others in getting them out.

Beat reporter Sarah Trotto has a nice article on Cedric Hunter's in the big leagues.

Columnist Greg Hansen about the return of minor league baseball to Tucson.

San Antonio Missions
Newspaper: San Antonio Express-News

Missions' beat reporter John Whisler has a nice profile of 3b James Darnell and his hitting . Darnell, who underwent off-season hand surgery has been scorching the ball for the best hitting team in the system.
