On my softball teams I have had numerous team mates that played A ball..some that played AA, a few that played AAA and four that I think made the big leagues... Kiko Garcia, Kurt Cannedy, Brian Greer and Joe Millette.
Very few softball players were good enough to even get drafted...very very few ever made it out of A ball..
Any AA position player if he respected softball would be a stand out softball player in two years if they wanted to. We all are softball players for a reason..
When it comes competing at an organized baseball above the entry level (college) ALMOST ALL OF US SUCKED..
Hell..most of us could not make a top level D1 program on our best day. Even the softball “goat” had to settle for Lewis and Clark.
Softball fulfills the love we had for baseball but couldn’t be fulfilled.
That doesn’t mean softball isn’t a great game... it’s just that it’s mostly a game for baseball washouts or in my case “never were”. Hell I was a two inning one at bat per game little leaguer.
