Big Promotion in Iowa City
While there hasn't been much for the fans to be excited about in Iowa City lately, ownership has decided to give them a reason to come to the ballpark and spend their precious cash. Earlier today, the franchise called up one of the top prospects in the organization Hank Roling. Roling comes in and immediately becomes one of the best players on the big league club. After dominating the minor leagues for the past 4 seasons with 149 homers, 137 steals, and a .332 average, he gets the call to see what he can do on the big stage. He is a player with many tools to his game. He has a good glove and range for second base. He can hit, hit for some power and steal bases. In season 15, between class high A and AA he combined to drive in 199 runs in one season. I'm not sure he'll have that kind of success in the bigs, but he should be a nice addition to a franchise that is in rebuild mode. Roling should be around for a while with Iowa City and is just the player that they can build around. Good job on getting the call up youngster.
