Albert Cartwright Talks About His Season

Greeneville Astro Alumni, Albert Cartwright (07,08), was interviewed by the The Tribune in his home country of the Bahamas. In the article, he talks about what he needs to do to progress beyond AA next season.

"Hopefully if I can do that (get on base more), it will get me into the big league (Majors)," he projected. "But you also always need to work on your defense, if you want to get better.

"But as long as I can put the bunts down, get on base, I should be able to look forward to a good year."

Cartwright plans to head back to Florida to spend his off season preparing for spring training and doesn't have a plan to play winter ball at this time.

He is one of only two players from the Bahamas in minor league baseball. If he can make it to the show, he will be the sixth player from the Bahamas to do so.
