Conor Gillaspie, the Cape Cod Baseball League's 2007 MVP and batting champion, spoke with CodBall early on a recent September morning from the athletic department of the Wichita State University Shockers. Listen to our latest CodBall Conversation. Conor, an articulate and thoughtful collegiate player, also is the #13 pro prospect in the nation and he comes from the nation's #13 ranked college program.
Everything about this kid points to serious baseball.
We talked with Conor about Wichita State's phenomenal bid in the College World Series and his experience playing with this year's runner-up in the Cape league, the Falmouth Commodores. He gives his perspectives on whether the CCBL is for show or competition and whether it's a pitcher's league or a hitter's league.
Justin Smoak, the Cape's 2006 MVP, also spoke with CodBall earlier this year.
