Checking Up With Delino DeShields' Offspring

One more ripping from ESPN the Magazine: in their August 23 issue they profiled four players from different sports who are "on the verge of breaking big". Baseball's case study was none other than Delino DeShields Jr.:

Delino DeShields Jr., 18

Pedigree:Delino DeShields, former second baseman and National League triples leader

Production: As a senior, the 5'9", 175-pound speedster hit .415 and stole 29 bases.

Prospects: Drafted eighth overall by the Houston Astros, Junior will shift from centerfield (his high school position) to second base (his father's domain).

Good luck, DD Jr! We're keeping an eye out for you!

Go get 'em, my son! Vaya con Dios!
