I sent a note to former Citadel Catcher Brian Shubsda. Brian sent a very nice note back about himself. I got to see Brian with the Newark Bears this last season.
Concerning his teammates on this exciting Bears team, Brian says, "it is very humbling to be in a clubhouse like ours, with names like Carl Everett, Armando Benitez, and Ramiro Mendoza". He says that he enjoys playing at their park in Newark.
Brian very kindly says that he was glad he could respond to my request for info. He says that getting letters and pictures in the mail is fun.
He also mentions that his best friend, Todd Frazier was with the Louisville Bats this year! That is his Kentucky connection!
