    Goose Kallunki of Orem HS and UVU--I think he's in A ball right now, not sure what the organization is.

    Interesting to see that these Super Leagues haven't produced a lot of major league ball players. Maybe the old way was better. Maybe we need to cut down the unending youth play, bring back American Legion to its full glory (noticed that three of the major league ball players with true Utah roots play for programs (Taylorsville/Kearns) that still have strong American Legion programs. I was just wondering if Super Leagues and high schools dumping Automotive/Legion for the baseball academy and other programs has helped develop baseball talent. It seems like we had more professional presence, especially at the show 20-30 years ago.
