Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Morning Report for Wednesday, April 11th, 2018.
*****Today’s report is abbreviated compared to what we will normally have with the Morning Report due to a death in my family; my mother-in-law Gwen Jackson passed away last night. She was a huge Cubs fan and used to tell me stories about how Hank Sauer was her favorite player back in the 1950s.
We mourn her loss but we are also grateful that her suffering from cancer is at an end. My wife Jeri and the rest of the family are doing OK.
I haven’t yet reviewed yesterday’s highlights or today’s baseball news in any detail. Thus, the abbreviated report. We’ll be back to normal coverage tomorrow.
