Local kid drafted!

Paul Blackburn of Heritage High here in Brentwood was drafted in the third round by the cubs last week. The whole town is buzzed of course. His proud father happens to be the pe teacher on my wife’s school staff. Scouting report on Paul, a hard throwing RHP, is that his stuff is raw but has lots of upside, and he has the choice between the minors and Arizona state. It is somehow very reassuring to see someone else’s dream come true. Gives the rest of us hope!
