"It definitely was different from other games out here, more fans, different atmosphere," said lefthander Patrick Urckfitz (Astros), who as a non-drafted free agent was one of the more unlikely Rising Stars roster members. "I signed for $15,000, so for me the extra $500 definitely helps."
Thanks to Astros County for the link.
Speaking of Urckfitz, saw this tweet on him by Baseball America's John Manuel during the game:
Sleeper LHP Patrick Urckfitz on the mound, was NDFA signee in 2008. Not the caliber of arms of others here but def. guy for my HOU top 30
His name also got a fair amount of attention as well on twitter.
