Potanko: Altoona Building Culture That Should be Repeated (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates, Jase Bowen

Ever since I returned from Altoona, my mind has been racing with excitement. For those of you that don’t know, I took a trip to cover the Pittsburgh Pirates Double-A club for their opening series.

On my first day there, I could feel the excitement on the diamond as well as the whole town of Altoona as I observed batting practice.

Everyone in the one restaurant I was in was talking about the home opener.

I could see prospects like Henry Davis, Liover Peguero, and Mason Martin talking to one another and pulling aside Altoona’s hitting coach Jon Nunnally aside to discuss their approaches.

Despite guys like Davis, Martin, and Peguero repeating another year in Double-A, you could see and feel a sense of excitement in these prospects to get their seasons started.

Maybe it’s to prove people wrong or prove something to themselves, but regardless, it was time to hit some baseballs in batting practice, and there were a few things I noticed.
