Mariners Farmhand David Colvin Offers A Look Into The Life Of A Rookie League Player

Drafted in the 27th round out of Division III Pamona-Pitzer Collge in California, pitcher David Colvin signed almost immediately after being drafted and headed out to Seattle’s rookie league affiliate in Pulaski, Virginia. The 22 year old offers and inside look into life in the low minors, and the daily grind he and his teammates face on a daily basis. In the story, Colvin talks about the differences between college and pro baseball, being converted from a starter to a reliever, playing on a rookie league team with half of its players from non-english speaking countries, and his goal of getting out of Pulaski. It’s a cool read.
