    There was some great baseball played at Kearns High during the State Tournament. The Don's team certainly was a highlight. Great players helped by great coaches seem to be a wonderful recurring theme in Utah baseball. Congratulations to Utah's new Mr. Baseball. He deserves the honor.
    Mr Aragon's article stated that Mr. Porter hit 97mph. That is an indisputable fact verified by approximately 20 professional scouts in attendance. Great job Mr Aragon. Your facts are right on just as your thoughts and thought provoking sports articles are.

    It will be interesting to watch his future. If he can stay healthy and continue to improve he is sure to end up in the big leagues some day but its hard to judge a kids future at this point ... so much can happen. Arm troubles and other injuries can take a can't miss and make him a forgettble has-been and that is the harsh nature of baseball. I would say if he really does have a 95MPH fast ball with good movement and he can stay healthy then look for his name in the big leagues in about 5 years.

    Congratulations to both Kayden, his coaches, teammates and parents. He was obviously blessed with incremental tools but a lot of people kept him on the right track and worked with him on the way. Best of luck to him as he continues his promosing career.
