Checking In With Tyler Kane
GoHuskies has the full list of dispatches from Dawgs based in various summer baseball sites around the country.
My name is Tyler Kane and I am playing this summer for the Mohawk Valley Diamond Dawgs in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League. It's a relatively new league but the competition is great. The first couple of days were a little awkward trying to learn everybody's name, and I am the only one from the West Coast on the team. So far things have been off to a good start. The team is 4-3 now and I'm in the same late-reliever role that I had at UW. Although I am hoping to get a few starts later this summer.
Little Falls, the town we are located in, is very small. It's a great atmosphere because everyone on the team is like a celebrity over here. We have done a few community things to reach out and help. I was involved in going to an elementary school to do a read-aloud for the kids. But they had a field day and so instead we played kickball with them.
My host family is great, they have three kids and we all get along great. I feel right at home. The weather here the first few days looked exactly like Seattle, a little rainy and gray. It finally got nice and for the last week it's been 85 and humid, perfect baseball weather. The summer has only just begun and I'll keep you updated on how it goes.
