I was excited to catch Tim Stauffer pitch last night for the Padres.
If anyone else read the book “The Last Best League” about the Cape cod League, Stauffer was one of the main features in the book. He went to the University of Richmond and was a top five draft pick.
Anyway, it seems like he’s struggled a bit in the minors, but he filled in in an emergency role last night and only gave up one earned run in 6 innings… showed great command of his fastball.
I’d never seen him pitch before last night. In the book, they made him sound like a nice kid.
