Sam Honeck

In his weekly Farm Report yesterday, Adam Rubin wrote about Cyclones 1B Sam Honeck and the whirlwind surrounding the draft and the beginning of a professional baseball career.? Honeck knows what the deal is for professional firstbasemen:

?I know going in that first base is usually looked at as a power position. You?re supposed to have your home runs, your RBI up. I?m working hard every day, I?m lifting weights, I?m doing everything I can to get bigger and stronger and hopefully I can keep my numbers up in those categories.?

Monday afternoon, the Brooklyn Cyclones released their initial roster of 2009.? Many more players will be added over the course of the season, perhaps even before Opening Night Friday, at home against the Staten Island Yankees.? To my eyes, it's currently one of the weaker Cyclones rosters in the last few years.

You can meet some of these Mets prospects on Tuesday and Wednesday.? Tuesday the team, the mascots, and the coaches will be at Prospect park, on the Long Meadow at the 9th St. entrance from 6 PM to 8 pm.? On Wednesday, the players will again be out at Borough Hall from 11:30-1:30 signing autographs and hanging out.

For every player, I will give, B/T, Ht/Wt, Date of Birth
