(Over the next two weeks, Sports Town will feature updates on WPIAL baseball players who are currently playing in the major or minor leagues. The posts were compiled by veteran baseball writer John Perrotto. We will feature two players every day.)
Getting a small taste of the major league life gave Kevan Smith motivation for the 2014 season.
The Chicago White Sox's catching prospect, Seneca Valley High School graduate and former Pitt quarterback had the chance to play in a major league exhibition game last year during spring training.
After the game, White Sox designated hitter Adam Dunn invited Smith to come to Chicago in September to see a game at U.S. Cellular Field after the minor league season ended.
"It made me want to get to the big league more than ever," Smith said in spring training.
