The future is now
Zephyrs first baseman had a solid effort in the Futures Game last night in Anaheim, going 1-for-2 with a pair of walks in the 9-1 U.S. victory over the World team.
Morrison laced a single into right-center field to lead off the bottom of the second against Yankees prospect Hector Noesi. He walked in two subsequent at-bats and played a flawless first base to help the U.S. to their first Futures Game win since 2006.
LoMo will be sticking around Anaheim tonight to take in the Home Run Derby, and according to him, is hoping Marlins All-Stars Josh Johnson and Hanley Ramirez can get him on the field for all the action.
The All-Star break festivities continue Wednesday in Allentown, PA, when Hector Luna will try to help the Pacific Coast League All-Stars over the International League squad in the Triple-A Midsummer Classic.
