Mitch Walding has paid his dues at High A.  Now in his second season as the Clearwater Threshers third baseman time is coming quickly for him to move on up to AA Reading.

Last night at Bright House, a Walding single to left in the ninth inning tied up the game Watch HERE.  His line drive single up the middle, Watch HERE, drove in the winning run in the Threshers 4-3, 13 inning walk off win over the Dunedin Blue Jays at Bright House.

Walding is exactly the guy you want up at the plate with the game on the line.   He is hitting .429 with runners in scoring position and .444 with the game “close and late”.

And in the Florida State League he is currently tied for second with six home runs and tied for first in runs batted in with 24.  He is in the top ten in just about every power category in the the League.

Usually around the FSL All Star game the third week in June is moving time.  If Mitch Walding can keep it up he will be packing his bags for a trip to Reading and AA baseball sooner than later. He is earning it!
