Here is a pretty interesting ESPN segment on Pirate prospect Mpho Ngoepe, who the team signed out of South Africa over the offseason. He is playing for South Africa in the World Baseball Classic if you have a chance to catch any of their games. They played today, but I was not able to get a glimpse of this young kid. Hat tip to Bucs Dugout for the link.
