During the Yakima Bears first homestand of the 2012 N.W.L. season, you may have missed a few ex-Big Leaguers in the stands.
Quinton McCracken, who had a stint with the Mariners in 2004, was on a scouting trip to watch how some of the Arizona Diamondbacks prospects were progressing here in Yakima.
Sitting behind home plate, next to McCracken, for much of the series though was a 13-year veteran of M.L.B. whom many in the valley will remember from his high school (Eisenhower) and American Legion (Beetles) days.
Some may have heard of him from the Brad Pitt flick “Moneyball.”
