“You know it when you see it” is an old phrase we usually get when we ask old scouts how do they know if a certain minor league player is a major league prospect. Darick Hall is one of those “You know it when you see it” prospects.
When we saw Lakewood was one of the games on MiLB-TV last night, it was a “no brainer” to pass up the Clearwater Threshers game in person and watch Darick Hall in real time from Charleston, South Carolina.
Big “D” did not disappoint. With the game tied at two runs a piece in the top of sixth and rain pending, Hall drove a long home run to right center. Watch HERE. The game would end in a rain-shortened 3-2 Lakewood win after seven innings.
The BlueClaws, with Hall back in the lineup, have now won five in row. He suffered an ankle injury during the first week of the season and has just recently returned to action. Watch HERE.
Hall was one of the main reasons we would hurry off to watch minor league spring training games back in March. Watch Hall go deep three times during the first week of the spring camp games, HERE.
Darick Hall some day will be a major league first base, power-hitter. First, we can only hope we will see him soon in the Clearwater Threshers lineup.
