From an story on the strength of the White Sox farm system:

This year’s Birmingham team isn’t as strong in the field but has some intriguing pitching prospects in right-hander Lance Broadway, a 2005 first-round pick from TCU, and left-handers Ray Liotta and Tyler Lumsden.

Whoah! Catch that? Ray Liotta is pitching in the minor leagues. I always suspected that Liotta had natural ball playing talent. He looked like a real pro when he was throwing and catching in Field of Dreams, but I figured that had more to do with the fact that he was standing next to Kevin “throws like a sissy” Costner. Guess not.

  1. For the sake of sports writers and ESPN classic, I hope this story is true. Having a guy who has a movie star’s name–one also associated with the greatest baseball movie of all time–is always awesome.

  2. And he’s one hellova prospect!!!

  3. Did you know that Liotta was the voice behind the lead characther in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City?

    I’ll never forget it!

  4. But look at her face!! What a FACE!!!
