For those that don’t know, Juan Pierre is one of the greatest leadoff hitters of all-time. He’s also great friends with Chone Figgins. We decided to send him the link to our Figgins tribute piece (which can be found here) and he loved it! We’re one step closer to getting Chone himself to read it! Go give our boy Juan a follow on Twitter. He’s a great player and a great man (and my brother’s hero).
Also, earlier today we were officially published on Baseball-Reference.com, the ultimate site for baseball statistics! Starting today, all of our posts that mention a player can be found on that player’s page (ex. Figgins and Vlad Guerrero). This is an absolutely HUGE day for The Batter’s Eye and we thank you for being part of it!
