Former Chiefs News & Notes – Weekend Edition
Well the games are here! Spring Training games at least and the Cardinals have been on TV all weekend which is great to watch. Heading into Sunday’s games, 48 former Chiefs have represented 19 different MLB teams in spring training games. I’ll have a full update with stats here on Monday!
Let’s take advantage of the weekend can catch up on some news and notes regarding former Chiefs around Spring Training camps.
Patrick Wisdom (2013) got a lot of attention over the weekend first for his working relationship (MLB.com version) with California neighbor Allen Craig (Stltoday.com version). Then Wisdom got attention for this mammoth HR in the 9th inning of the Cardinals 1st spring game.
Elsewhere…Longtime friend of the Chiefs and the Vonachen family, Harry Caray would have turned 100 this weekend. MLB.com put together a tribute with four of Harry’s calls.
A number of former Chiefs are going through MLB spring training at the brand new Cubs Park in Mesa. Among those is Junior Lake (2009) who made his MLB debut last summer and is still learning the outfield.
