Catching Up With Charlie Tilson
After missing 2012 with a shoulder injury, Charlie Tilson had a break-out season for the Peoria Chiefs in 2013. The former 2nd round pick hit .303 in 100 games with four home runs, eight doubles, six triples, 15 steals, 49 runs scored and 30 RBI. He earned a late season promotion to Palm Beach and collected 10 hits in nine games. A native of the Chicago area (New Trier High School), Tilson is headed to spring training this week for STEP Camp. He joined us on Tuesday for a chat about his off-season and a preview of 2014.
Tilson hit two home runs against Wisconsin on August 15, here is the first:
My thanks to Charlie Tilson for his time and later this week we are hoping to catch up with a few of his 2013 Chiefs teammates.
