July 15, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

I wanted to take a moment to inform readers that this time next week my family and I will be in Cape Cod for a week long vacation. We visited Disney in 2015 and mere minutes after we arrived in Orlando, we proclaimed we’d be going back again some day. This year, it’s time to slow it down again, and we couldn’t be more excited. Friday morning we head to Boston which is without a doubt one of my favorite places on earth. Big city with a small town feel. Saturday it’s Hyannis Port, and if you’ve ever wanted to experience quaint beaches, small towns, post-card views and the best seafood you’ll ever eat, book a trip to the Cape. You won’t be sorry.

What that means for UTRMinors is Thursday, July 21st’s Hitter of the Day installment will be my last until Sunday July 30th. Jim will be holding down the fort with his Pitcher Performances posts, and despite it being mid-late July, we are both in the early stages of preparing our off-season research.

So, thanks to all our readers for checking in every day, thanks for your loyalty and helping motivate us to do what we do every day.

Let’s see how my kids did at the plate last night shall we…
