On this date, June 18th, in the yer 2017, Charlottesville’s Michael Wielansky went 4-6, with 2 runs, 2 RBIs, 2 doubles, and a stolen base.
Michael went on to be the VBL MVP, of course, and he was the Houston Astros’ 18th round draft pick in 2018. I chose Michael because he has been assigned to Tri-City of the New York-Penn League, and got his first professional hit last night. (He’s 1-5 with 3 walks so far.) And it begins!
