A Terrific Season Comes To An End

The season of a lifetime came to an end yesterday with JJ getting into the game in the 9th inning as a defensive sub. On Saturday JJ went 2-4 with a single and a triple and got his first rbi.

It was a great season with the early part of the year being a very up and down ride. JJ started the season with the Padres, at there AAA Portland Team. JJ started of slow but rebounded to make the All-Star Team for the Pacific Coast League. He had a great showing at the All-Star game and thing were looking good. On July 28th JJ was traded to the Pirates and went off to Indianapolis. He did well by playing great defense and collecting a 17 game hitting streak along the way. On Sept 12th 2005 JJ got the call to the big leagues and on the 13th made his debut against the Cardinals going 1-4 with a double. JJ finish his big league run with a .192 average 5-26 with a double, triple and 1 rbi. JJ is poised to stay in the big leagues and will be working hard this off-season. JJ has not finalized his winter plans, playing in Mexico or the Dominican or just working out. We will keep you up-to-date when we hear something. Thanks for coming along for the ride.
