PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — One of the top teams in all of minor league baseball here in 2014 calls Dunedin, Florida home. The High-A Dunedin Blue Jays, as you probably guessed, are a Toronto Blue Jays affiliate in the Florida State League and this season they have rolled out to a 37-15 record.
One of the reasons Dunedin is so good is their starting rotation. One member of that rotation is former Temple Owl and Coatesville Area High product Ben White.
A 25-year-old right-hander, White is 2-2 in nine starts this season for Dunedin with a 3.73 ERA.
“I think the biggest thing is pitching to contact, having the confidence in the guys behind me to pick it up,” White tells KYW Newsradio. “I’ve worked on my sinker quite a bit, last season into this off-season, and I think it’s really reaping benefits. Getting a lot of bad contact and not too many guys seem to be finding the barrel, which is really important down here.”
