Prospect Highlights: Homer From Stetson Allie, Key RBI by Reese McGuire

We don’t often get highlights from the West Virginia Power, so here are some from the last couple days. It seems like the Rome Braves are the only team that posts highlights, so when the Power are in town, they usually post one per game for the visiting team.
