Boston Red Sox fans are anxious to see Jackie Bradley Jr. (Hyannis, 2009) in the bigs; there is even a #KEEPJBJ hash tag on Twitter. In Spring Training thus far, Bradley is leading the Sox in average (.429), hits (21), runs (9), and walks (tied with 8). The problem is the Red Sox already have a center fielder: Jacoby Ellsbury (Falmouth, 2004). And right field is occupied by The Flyin' Hawaiian, Shane Victorino. So, Bradley may be stuck starting the year in left field with the Sox, or in center field with the Pawtucket Red Sox (AAA).
The Barnstable Patriot published an interview with Bradley this week. Bradley mentioned that he is still in contact "everyday" with the Cape family that hosted him back in 2009 (Tino and Terri DiGiovanni). Bradley also said that CCBL players should try not to worry about impressing scouts and just enjoy the experience.
