BASEBALL: Former Cardinal off to quick start for Braves' minor league affiliate
A former Ball State baseball player and current Atlanta Brave minor leaguer has picked up hitting right where he left off when his college eligibility ran out.
Through Sean Godfrey’s first 10 games with the Danville Braves, the Atlanta Braves’ Advanced Rookie-level affiliate, he has hit to a .366 batting average in 41 at-bats.
After falling to the 22nd round of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft, Godfrey has played with the proverbial chip on his shoulder.

“I kind of just look at it like I got nothing to lose,” he said. “Just know that I’m going to go and have fun and see what happens. Hopefully, I can prove some people wrong.”
In addition to hitting .366, Godfrey has scored 11 runs, has nine RBIs, as well as one stolen base.
