PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – When describing former Avon Grove High School (Chester County) and West Chester University star Joey Wendle, his manager these days with the Class-A Carolina Mudcats in the Cleveland Indians organization, David Wallace, keeps it simple.
“Guys that can hit, can hit,” Wallace tells KYW Newsradio. “I know that sounds pretty elementary, but it’s true, and Joey can just hit.”
The second baseman’s .313 average for the Mudcats in his second year as a pro, more than supports that argument.
“I’ve been able to feel pretty good at the plate this year,” Wendle told KYW Newsradio prior to Monday’s night game in Wilmington. “Had some success, had a little bit of luck here and there. Overall, it’s just been a good, successful season to this point.”
