IBI on Site 1.03
Here is episode number three this season of "IBI on Site", a new exciting project here at the IBI.
In today's show we go on site to both Lake County and Akron, home of the Indians' Low-A affiliate Lake County Captains and Double-A affiliate Akron RubberDucks. Host Hayden Grove and IBI creator Tony Lastoria talk about some of the early season struggles young prospects often have to work through in the lower levels as well as a few players at Lake County. Hayden also conducts an on-air interview with top prospect Clint Frazier (with video of his first Lake County home run) and talks to Captains manager Marc Budzinski and Akron manager Dave Wallace about their respective teams and levels of development.
This is a new weekly web-based TV show that is hosted and directed by Hayden Grove and will include several guests on the show throughout the season. Often times the IBI's Tony Lastoria and other IBI contributors will be on, but the show will also feature many different people in the organization from players to coaches to some of the staff at the respective Indians' affiliates. Over the course of the season the show is taped "on site" at the various affiliates in the Indians organization.
Please keep in mind this is not a big budget TV show so it will not be perfect; however, we are confident that the show will be well-done and be informative. Enjoy and please provide feedback and ideas by commenting below or emailing us by using the contact form above.
Frazier and Lindor's interviews were similiar. Both want to prove they are worthy of being a #1 pick, and also they are very mature for there age. Hopefully we see both as Indians in 2 - 3yrs.
Looking forward to the next on site. It has become one of my favorite to look forward to on the weekly basis.
Keep up the good work!
