Walter on Sheets
"Gavin has worked incredibly hard to become an outstanding left-handed power threat and a good defender at first base. One of our captains, Gavin is the guy you want hitting with the game on the line. He hits the ball to all fields and has great power potential. With Gavin batting cleanup and Stu just in front of him, that 3-4 combination will be as good as any in the country."
