This week, 35th overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft Kameron Misner joins the podcast (6:45). The University of Missouri product talks Clinton roots, the art of stealing bases and the talented team he’s a part of. Then (26:00), we look at the streaking LumberKings, Peyton Burdick’s bashing, and the playoff chase.
Enjoy Episode 20 of A-Ball!
Delaying the start of his professional career, contract negotiations between the Marlins and Misner’s camp went down to the wire. His deal was made official mere minutes before the July 12 signing deadline.
Through 22 games, Misner is slashing .247/.370/.371 while playing primarily center fielder and going a perfect 8-for-8 in stolen base attempts.

Hogging the headlines in Clinton, fellow early-round draft pick Peyton Burdick recently earned Midwest Player of the Week honors. He has reached base safely in 20 of his last 21 games, posting a gaudy 1.058 OPS with five home runs and 27 runs batted in.
