Spring is almost officially here, weather wise and that means so is baseball season!

Right in our very own backyard we have an awesome spot to watch a great Minor League Team - our very own Tri-City Valley Cats! Being that they are a Short-Season A classification affiliate of the Houston Astros, more than a handful of past players have ended up on the Major League Baseball team. But, not all end up in Houston! Check out some of these players!

Felipe Paulino - 2005 originally signed to Colorado Rockies

Mark McLemore - 2005 originally signed to Florida Marlins

Drew Sutton - 2004 originally signed to Boston Red Sox

Chad Reineke - 2004 Cincinnati Reds

Matt Albers - 2003 originally signed to Arizona Diamondbacks (the first of the Valley Cats to make it pro)
