6/18 - Buck "Coats" the Competition

For this weekend's series between the Rochester Red Wings and the Charlotte Knights (Chicago White Sox), I got to see an old friend of mine, Buck Coats. He was with the Iowa Cubs when I was the bat boy back in 2006. We got to know each other that year and turns out that he was a pretty cool guy. Yes, Buck Coats is his real name. Doesn't even have a middle name.

"I was raised on a farm," Coats said in an interview back in 2006. "Just Buck Coats. No middle names."
