Here’s the REAL first podcast on This One’s For Nick. I recorded this one two weeks ago. In this episode, I talked to Colorado Rockies pitcher Stephen Head. Head was signally drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 2nd round of the 2005 draft as a first basemen. He had success as a hitter until reaching the higher ranks, where he struggled. Head decided to take a different approach to the game, this time on the rubber. After a brief stint in Tri-City, the left-handed Head is now pitching for the Ashville Tourists as a reliever. Acting as the big brother for prospects like Corey Dickerson, Tyler Matzek, and Peter Tago; Head and I talked about his conversion to pitcher, how his time at Ole Miss helped him, and if he ever thought about calling it quits.
