You, are right about Kratz, I watched him play 7/26/09 against The Buffalo Bisons at Indianapolis he is a good catcher with an excellent arm his hitting is very suspect
and I think that lack of consistancy at the plate is his major disadvantage. to making it to the majors.
Further adding to the great Erik Kratz story is the fact that, ALMOST exactly a year to the day after this article was written, he gets his first callup to the bigs. DURING the All-Star game. This is almost prophetic in retrospect. Nice!
I’m also a grad of Eastern Mennonite; and Erik’s record there was outstanding. I believe any team who would have him would improve their team. Good article on his potential. I pray he will get a chance to show what he can do. way one
