Somehow I missed this yesterday, but Todd Doolittle is blogging about his experiences in the Arizona Fall League.
Todd does a pretty good job of introducing himself.
Greetings everyone, my name is Todd Doolittle currently playing for the Mesa Solar Sox here in the Arizona Fall League. Let me start off by telling you a few things about myself and how I got here. I just finished up my fourth professional season of minor league baseball for the Florida Marlins. I'm from Meridian,MS where I was born and raised. I attended West Lauderdale High School where I lettered in baseball and soccer for 4 years winning 3 State Championships in Baseball and 1 in Soccer. I then proceeded to play at Meridian Community College for 2 years leading our team to the Juco World Series in Grand Junction Colorado in 2003. I continued my career playing under one of the best head baseball coaches in college baseball, Ron Polk, at Mississippi State University for 2 years going on to win the SEC Championship in 2005. Going undrafted in 2005 the Marlins gave me an opportunity to futher my career and I signed.
Todd started the year in the GCL and made his way up to Carolina.
I'm not sure what the future holds for him but in the AFL he has pitched 4.1 innings out of the pen and hasn't allowed a run, while holding the opponents to a .214 BA.
So far, so good.
