    Souhan: Building a Baseball Star (Buxton)

    http://www.startribune.com/sports/twins/248064021.html

    The link above is Part 1 of a series by Jim Souhan in the Star Tribune about Byron Buxton. He visited his hometown in Georgia and his place in Atlanta where he worked out all offseason. He also spent time with him in his condo in Ft. Myers where he lives with his girlfriend and their son.

    It's really a tremendous article. Looking forward to the series.

    Yes.

    Often.

    Great article. I wonder, if he wasn't an all around tool guy, if he was enough of a pitching prospect to get drafted. Anyone know?

    I honestly didn't know that Souhan could write that well.

    I'm also looking forward to the next installment.

    (And to seeing how young Buxton tears up the minors before we (hopefully) get a glimpse of him in mlb yet this year.)

    Nice camera work by Jerry Holt, as well.

    Exceptional writing by Souhan. I hope Minnesota treats Byron Buxton well.
