More on Blaine Hardy from Kansas City Royals website
I previously wrote an article about Blaine Hardy, a former pitcher and 2005 graduate of Edmonds-Woodway, who was drafted by the Kansas City Royals. Hardy moved up to Double-A baseball after playing a full season with the Burlington Bees, and now pitches for the Northwest Arkansas Naturals, an affiliate of the Kansas City Royals. Check out the latest on Hardy in this article, written by Dave Sanford from the Royals scout website.
