The Inland Empire 66ers are closing in on a division title and the closer on the mound is hard throwing Kenyon Yovan. At first glance, an undrafted free agent coming out of the bullpen in a low A game makes sense. But Kenyon’s story is anything but typical.
I don’t want to spoil the interview by giving too much away but suffice it to say that after hearing him you’ll have a new addition to your favorite prospects list.
If you are looking for a preview, this tweet is it:
I’d like to thank Kenyon for his time today and I encourage you to follow him on Twitter @kenyonyovan21 to keep up with his life and career.
2023 Trash Panda no doubt
Sometimes successful closers rise faster than that…..
Thanks for that interview Jeff, it looks like we have another closer coming up who can also be a pinch hitter
Pretty sure that would be his dream. Close out the top of the 9th, come in and drive home the winning run in the bottom half of the inning.
