Kennelly reached base three times in his season debut
In Australia, Sam Kennelly made his season debut for the Perth Heat and had a strong game. He went 1-for-2 with two walks and handled all his plays at second base cleanly. Kennelly was signed as a shortstop and has played there in the ABL, but his team had a minor league veteran at SS last night named Joey Wong. He is eight years older than Kennelly, with five years of minor league experience, spending this past season at AA. Last year in the ABL, Kennelly saw time at second base, third base and shortstop for the Perth Heat.
In Venezuela, Jhonathan Ramos faced just one batter in the seventh inning and allowed a single that scored two inherited runners. He was replaced and his runner was left stranded.
John was born in Kearny, NJ, hometown of the 2B for the Pirates 1909 World Championship team, Dots Miller. In fact they have some of the same relatives in common, so it was only natural for him to become a lifelong Pirates fan. Before joining Pirates Prospects in July 2010, John had written numerous articles on the history of baseball while also releasing his own book and co-authoring another on the history of the game. He writes a weekly article on Pirates history for the site, has already interviewed many of the current minor leaguers with many more on the way and follows the foreign minor league teams very closely for the site. John also provides in person game reports of the West Virginia Power and Altoona Curve.
