But my son’s mother-in-law Lisa Moore recently had a special 60th birthday and wanted to take her two children, their spouses and all the grandchildren to the coast for a celebration fishing trip. Wayne and I were appointed as the guides, so we knew we could never fish lures with 11 people, almost all of whom were novice fishermen. That’s a good way to get a hook in the ear.  

So what would we do?

Granger Studdard made quite an impression last season in the California Collegiate League.

After all, the Hays product mashed the ball during his debut campaign to the tune of a .332 batting average to go with five home runs and 49 RBI. He added an All-Star game nod to what was an all-around breakthrough 2014.  

Now, fresh off a relatively strong sophomore season at Texas State, Studdard is back for a second summer with the Santa Barbara Foresters.
