Simon Castro: Watson Family Favorite
I remember last Opening Weekend when my parents and I were eating lunch at a restaurant across Jefferson Boulevard from the ballpark. We were sitting at the counter facing Jefferson. All of a sudden, I saw a bunch of our players walking down the street. I didn’t know if they could see us through the glass, and being early in the season, I’m not sure how many of them knew who I was, even though we’d already been on the road together for a week. I was telling my parents who these guys were… They were pretty impressed. Then one of the players looked over and waved. My parents thought it was the coolest thing ever.
Now that guy is the talk of Padres’ major-league camp. It’s Simon Castro. One of my favorite people from last year’s team and my parents’ favorite TinCap of all time. Keep your eye on him… He could be on the fast track.
