Cedrick Bowers wants to pitch in the National League wih the Colorado Rockies this year.

If he is to get the opportunity, he'll first have to pitch well for the Rockies'AAA team in Colorado Springs.

So far, so good, for the left-hander out of Chiefland.

Bowers has appeared in three games for the Sky Sox –one start –with a record of 1-1. He has allowed seven with in 11 2/3 innings. He has fanned 13 and walked six. The ERA is at 3.86.

The Sky Sox, who play in the Pacific Coast League, were 17-19 after this past weekend.

Some more solid work by Bowers at AAA could earn him a trip to the bigs.

Bowers, now 30 years old, originally was signed by the Devil Rays. He made it to the Rays' AAA squad before opting to play in Japan then Korea.

This year, he decided the give MLB one more shot.


By now, Whitney Mills must be thinking what made a great decision she made by trying out for the Santa Fe Community College softball team.
