Justin Miller, former pitcher/outfielder for JCCC, is a loon -- a Great Lakes Loon.
The Los Angeles Dodgers drafted Miller on the second day of the MLB draft in spring 2007. An affiliate of the Dodger, the Loons will start its season April 3 against the Dayton Dragons.
In an interview with the Saginaw News, Miller described his approach to the game.
“I consider myself an athlete, not just a pitcher. I enjoyed playing outfield and hitting. In high school, I didn't concentrate on baseball. I played all the sports. When the high school season was over, I went to another sport ... Mechanically, I'm probably behind some of the other guys who have pitched a lot. I'm always learning. I'm always throwing, talking to people about pitching, trying to get as much information as I can get.”
