Hello From Arizona
Hello, everyone. Steve Clevenger here in Arizona with the Mesa Solar Sox/Cubs. Being the first blog entry I wanted to briefly to tell you a little about myself. I was born and raised in Baltimore City, Md., and now reside in Glen Burnie. I attended Mount Saint Joseph High School, where I played baseball and basketball. I was teammates with Gavin Floyd (Chicago White Sox) my freshmen year of high school and won a state championship in 2004. After high school, I attended Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, La., and earned a spot on the all-conference team my freshmen year. Then I transferred to Chipola College in Mariana, Fla., where I earned all-conference honors and the team earned a spot in the state tournament for a berth to the Junior College World Series. After the 2006 season, I was drafted in the seventh round by the Chicago Cubs and played my first season Boise of the Northwest League. I spent 2007 between Daytona and Boise and 2008 between Daytona and Tennessee. We won the Florida State League championship in 2008 under manager Jody Davis. I am looking forward to playing in the AFL for the second straight year, and hopefully I’ll have the opportunity to advance even more in 2009. I hope everyone enjoys reading this and I can’t wait to hear from all of you! Thank you for reading.
