Good for him. He didn't give up on his dream.

When he signed he was assigned to the Valley Cats in upstate NY. I was at their game the night he arrived and was introduced the crowd.  He wound up sitting in the stands with some other guys (friends?) right in front of me. He spend the whole game making wisecracks about the team, the stadium, and the crowd. Came across as a really entitled a$$hole. IIRC he never pitched an inning for them and was immediately promoted. Given his attitude I am not surprised he struggled.

Well, 8 years later, and I'm sure he's been adequately humbled by his circumstances. What 22 year old Stanford grads aren't cocky?
