Reds prospect Alex Blandino talked about the time he watched Bubba Watson golf ... at the ballpark
The 27th edition of the Rookie Career Development Program took place recently and it was a successful turnout. The program is designed to "help up-and-coming big leaguers with off-the-field issues like media training and finances." In attendance this year, 20 members of MLB Pipeline's Top 100 prospects were educated with information to assist them in their future careers.
One of the attendees was Reds prospect Alex Blandino, who not only embraced the RCDP, but shared a cool story about the time he watched PGA star Bubba Watson hit some golf balls.
This wasn't just an ordinary outing, however. Watson is a part owner of the Reds Double-A affiliate, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. He put on a showcase in front of the team, with Blandino witnessing the feat.
Watson apparently took a right-handed club, flipped it upside down and did things we come to expect from someone of his caliber:
"It was pretty cool to experience that for sure," said Blandino.
Pretty cool, indeed.
