Mike McDade is a switch hitting prospect currently driving the offense for the Double A New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Drafted by Toronto in the 6th round of the 2007 draft out of Silverado High School in Las Vegas as a catcher, McDade shifted to first base as a professional.
McDade, who turns 22-years-old on Sunday, had a break out season last year with High A Level Dunedin, where he led the Florida State League with 21 homers and was awarded the R. Howard Webster Award as the team's Most Valuable Player.
Through 25 games this season, the 6-feet-1-inch, 260-pound McDade has a .347 batting average with 2 homeruns, 9 RBI and 19 runs scored.
I caught up with Mike last week and spent some time talking about his progress, his team, some extra curricular activities, as well as plenty more.
