Terry Stotts Rumors

“I’m really proud of the last two years, and I think everybody who was involved in that took a lot of pride in that. But this is the NBA and things like that happen. LaMarcus left and other guys had other opportunities. “The way [general manager] Neil [Olshey] has constructed the roster, it’s a strong plan with a lot of young players that have room to grow. I think it’s a plan that is going to be challenging, fun, and very rewarding.”
Last summer, when he was asked to throw out the first pitch at a Hillsboro Hops minor league game, Stotts spent the days leading up to the event getting his right arm in shape. He figures he hadn’t played baseball since he was in 6th grade in Marshfield, Wisconsin, and even then he was either too young or too unremarkable to identify himself as an infielder or outfielder, pitcher or catcher. “I tried to pitch some,” Stotts recalls. “But I didn’t really have a position.”
