From the world of professional baseball here comes an update on the progress of two-sport Villanova legend Matt Szczur's career in the Chicago Cubs minor league system.
At the end of the 2012 season, I thought that Matt Szczur's baseball career was in a bit of flux. He didn't really hit for average or power after he was promoted from hi-A to double-A, and struggled in the hitter friendly Arizona Fall League after the season. 19 games into 2013, I'm happy to report that Szczur is off to one of the best starts of his professional career, hitting .297/.365/.432 and is looking like he may actually get a shot to prove himself in the Major Leagues at some point relatively soon, possibly as early as this September depending on how things go for the rest of this season.
Good for Szczur, one of Villanova's all-time best athletes.
