After a few moments, I wondered if our new recruit was the 25-year-old Steven Wright who has pitched in the Indians organization for the past few seasons. But no, the Steven Wright signed by the Seals plays outfield. Then I thought that the player in question must be the 34-year-old Steve Wright from North Carolina who played outfield in the Mariners organization in 1998. Uh, no. Not that Steve Wright either.
Lyon College, a small school in Arkansas that is a member of the NAIA. Wright had two outstanding seasons at Lyon College and he still owns the all-time single-season school record for doubles (27) and runs scored (77). In 2006, he even received honourable mention as an NAIA All-American.
