TigsTown: How did it make you feel, seeing your son Lance following in your footsteps in baseball and to be recently selected in the 2006 draft.
Bull Durham: Well obviously, as a father I'm extremely proud of him and everything he has accomplished to date. Watching him progress at this game over the past few years, there is no doubt I see baseball in his future.
TT: Was it even little more special knowing he was selected by the Detroit Tigers organization of which you've become a major part of with your role here in Toledo.
BD: Definitely. This is a class organization that I'm proud to work for and be part of, and having Lance part of it is just a bonus for me.
TT: What are Lance's immediate plans for baseball and where is he planning to play in 2007.
BD: He is going to be attending Eastern Michigan University in the fall and playing there. They have a great program and I know he'll get some excellent coaching and be able to develop well there.
TT: If you were scouting Lance and were to provide a non-bias scouting-report on your son, what would you say about his hitting and defensive skills.
BD: As a hitter, he is consistent and has a lot of power. He can spray the ball across the diamond and outfield where and when he needs to. He also has a good eye at the plate and is very patient and will wait for his pitch to hit.
Defensively, he has a strong arm from the outfield and gets to the ball in time. But one of his most impressive attributes I would have to say would be his ability to read the play and know what to do when he gets the ball.
