Interviews With Mike McDade

Mike McDade was a 6th round pick out of Silverado High School in Las Vegas, Nevada in the 2007 Amateur Draft. The switch hitter is listed at a hulking 6'1, 260lbs. McDade had a breakout campaign in 2010, leading the Florida State League in HR (21), 2nd in TB (215) and was 4th in Slug (.448). His season in High A ball earned him the R. HOWARD WEBSTER AWARD, which recognizes the most valuable player at each of the Club's minor league affiliated teams. He has also been selected to play in the Arizona Fall League for the Peoria Javelinas when the season starts on October 12.

Our boy Jesse was able to catch up with Mike on two separate occasions during the 2009 season.

In the first interview they discuss what players do during rain delays, how long he has been switch hitting and the adjustment from catcher to first base.


In the second interview they speak about why Mike's stats on the road are better than his numbers at home, his lefty swing being more productive and what it's like to mentor a fellow player at his position.
