Mason Katz homers, Mike Mayers strikes out five in Wednesday action

It was a short commute for the Cardinals’ minor leaguers as they took on the Marlins’ minor leaguers on the Fish side of the complex today. Mason Katz, the Cardinals’ 4th round selection in 2013, hit his first home run playing for the Palm Beach squad. I still believe his likely destination is Peoria. Also for the Beach Birds Mike Mayers, the Birds’ 3rd round pick last year...

An interview with St. Louis Cardinals’ player development guru Gary LaRocque
