Andy Phillips on Hunter Webb
“The first thing you see with Hunter Webb is his speed, he can just flat out run. He plays center field, but he can also come in and play second base too, but his speed is what makes him so valuable. He’s just a baseball player. He’s the type of guy that makes things happen, there’s action everywhere and he’s causing havoc. He’s a very athletic kid, a high-energy, high-motor type guy.”
