Roch Kubatko of the Baltimore Sun mentioned Brad Pennington in his blog today. You know one fo the failed Oriole prospects of the past. And if you know Pennington, you immediately think of one thing, the Griffey blast he surrendered, that may have been the longest home run ever hit at Camden Yards.
If you hear Pennington's name and you're an Orioles fan, you think of that blast. That is the ultimate for an athlete. For their career to be associated with one moment. Pennington achieved it.
He was a can't miss prospect. Speaking of which anybody have any Joey Meyer rookie cards?
