The members of the Canterbury Middle School baseball team knew they were getting a new pitching coach this season but didn’t exactly know his resume.
“I had an idea of who he was. I had heard his name before. But the first time I met him, I did go look him up,” admitted infielder, Anthony Valenzuela.
On the contrary, the team’s head coach Spencer Stegemann knew the name Johan Santana very well.
“I’m not going to say no to a former big leaguer and Cy Young Award winner helping me out,” said Stegemann.
