Chris Colabello Took Road Less Traveled To Chase MLB Dream

Chris Colabello is one of those players we look for in the box score every morning, not because of his RBI or OPS+ totals, but because he took the road less traveled than most other major league players.

Colabello lived in Italy where his father pitched and played for the Mill City All-Americans as a small college player before grasping at an opportunity with the Worcester Tornadoes of the Can-Am League and now, age 30, breaking the Twins April RBI record held by Kirby Puckett, a Hall of Famer.

We look every morning for that Twins box score and the Colabello line, simply because there may not be a man in America who more appreciates what it means to be a major league baseball player.
