Seven Reasons Jerry Sands Will Be a Good Fit for the Bulls in 2014

With Jerry Sands’ reassignment to Minor League Camp last week there is a high probability he’ll begin the season here in Durham. So without further ado, let’s take a look at why the Bull City is lucky to have Sands in a Bulls uniform.

7. How many other players have hit 2 grand slams in the same game while driving in 10 runs in one day?

 

6. He’s already off to a hot start and the season hasn’t even begun. In MLB Spring Training, the 26-year-old hit .324 with 3 HR, 8 RBIs and 5 doubles in just 36 plate appearances.

5. He’s not afraid to get tossed and he knows how to sport a mean mohawk (when you see it you’ll be giddy).

 

4. He’s a local guy, playing his high school baseball at Smithfield-Selma High School. He was named co-conference Player of the Year with Clayton High School’s Chris Archer in 2005.

3. The dude drops bombs. In 578 career Minor League games, he’s hit 128 HR. That’s an average of a HR every 4.5 games. And Sands, a right-handed hitter, will look to hit the DBAP’s famous snorting bull and win himself a lot of free steaks.

2. In just three seasons at Catawba College, he set school records for home runs in a career (61), RBIs in a season (85) and walks in a season (56) and career (132).

1. He’s a three-time MiLB.com Organizational All-Star (2010-2012), hitting a combined .293 with 90 home runs and 288 RBIs.

Kind of a Big Deal
