Wierzbicki Featured in QC Paper

Former Greeneville Astro Jesse Wierzbicki has a nice feature in the Quad Cities local paper.  The article focuses on a knee injury that forced him to move from catcher to first while he was in college.  Here is what his current manager, Omar Lopez had to say about him.  Lopez was also his manager during his time in Greeneville.

"He's got a lot of potential to be in this organization and baseball for a long time,"... "When you work like that, he could be in the big leagues."
Wierzbicki is a bit older for the league he is playing in and his maturity shows in the approach he takes towards the game.
"I try to just play each day and not try to think too much into the future. You never know what can happen. But I'm trying to stay positive and get better each day." 

Blast from the past - here is video of Wierzbicki's first pro homer in Greeneville
