Wonderful story and photos in this past Sunday’s New York Times on Vandy slugger Pedro Alvarez, who as an 18-year-old turned down a million dollar signing bonus from the Red Sox in order to pursue his education, and college baseball, at Vanderbilt. Great profile of Alvarez’s stellar career so far and of his supportive family. He’s expected to be an early pick in this Thursday’s major league draft.
A few pages later in the same sports section you’ll find a story about former Commodore and current Broncos’ quarterback Jay Cutler, back on the field after receiving a diagnosis of Type I diabetes in April. NYT reports Jay has his diabetes under control and is back to his strong self. Congratulations and best wishes, Jay.
