I am sure any fan of minor league ball in the state has heard about Max Sapp's situation. The Astros top pick in 2006 has had some health problems. You can read about it on that web site, hopefully the Legends will put something up too, but he has viral meningitis and had a seizure last night, which was not his first.
I am not a fan of speculation or of cliches in this area, but Max is a great guy, and Lexington has benefited from his presence the last couple of years. I always love getting the players to sign cards for me at the games, and Max seems flattered to be asked. I have seen some guys batting around .200 snub collectors at the low A parks. I hope they enjoy their big league attitudes while they can. I never saw the Astros number 1 pick in '06 do that. He is a guy who enjoys being there, talking to fans, and playing the game.
