Raymond Hunnicutt went 2 for 4 with a run and a strikeout.
I'm heading down to the GCL on the 6th and should be able to catch 3 games.

Significant in that Fowler, who had spent the season primarily with the Shorebirds, had been 'loaned" to Norfolk for the 2nd time last week. Guessing this is a permanent move to Frederick which would really be a promotion.

Don't want to say they are not pitching to him, he has just learned to be very patient. Low A pitchers often simply can't throw strikes (or have the umpires call them) so patient hitters at this level will draw walks. Strikes out a lot too. Think you will really get a read on him when he reaches the Carolina League and has to try and contact more.
