Hello everyone and welcome back to the Gameday. It's a tough day here at Minor League Ball as earlier we got news of the passing of a family member in the Sickels house. John's wife, Jeri, who runs a lot of the behind the scenes things for The Baseball Prospect Book, lost her father. Our sincerest condolences go out to John, Jeri, and the whole Sickels/Jackson clan. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Rest In Peace
