Yesterday Mark wrote a feature on shortstop Ian Desmond, how the 28-year-old has come a long way in the Nationals’ organization. It took him years to become an elite player at his position after many had written him off as a prospect.
Today we have some of Mark’s one-on-one interview with Desmond that aired in last night’s Geico SportsNet Central. In this clip he recalls the road it took to establish himself as a big leaguer.
