At the end of August Post native Reid Redman finished his first season as a professional minor league baseball player.
As reported in June on The Garza Post, Redman was drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays to play for it's rookie league team the Princeton Rays in West Virginia.
The former Midland Christian and Texas Tech standout put up good numbers at the plate for the P-Rays with a .265 batting average. And according to the team's web site, Redman was the recipient of the 2012 Princeton Rays' "Most Popular Player" award as the result of season-long voting by fans.
The story on the web site reported that Redman hopes to "advance up the Tampa Bay player development ladder. He moved to Houston the week after Thanksgiving to begin workouts in preparation for spring training in Port Charlotte, FL."
Reid is the son of Dale and Penny Redman of Midland and the grandson of Delores and the late Jimmie Redman of Post.
