Szczur Gives South Jersey and the Cubs Something to Cheer About

South Jersey has been swept up in Mike Trout fever, and deservedly so, but the future of Major League Baseball will have more that one representative from down this way.  Matt Szczur continues to make his case for 2013 with the Chicago Cubs.

The Cape May product who attended Villanova is becoming more than just a blip on the Cubs radar.  The soon to be 23-yr-old outfielder recovered from starting the 2012 season 4-for-28 at the plate for the Daytona Cubs.  Since then Szczur has hit about .300 and has a .274 avergae for the season.  The Lower Cape May H.S. grad is 4th in the Florida State League with 45 runs scored, and 2nd in the league with 23 stolen bases.

The numbers Szczur has posted should find him in the FSL All-Star Game, and a ticket stamped to Knoxville to move up to the AA level within the Cubs organization.  Success for the Tennessee Smokies would seem to be right up Matt’s talent level, as he ranks as one of the Top-3 talents in the Cubs organization.

The more Matt Szczur shows his abilities, you see a little Mike Trout in him.  You know the Cubs are hoping that – right now they are 26-48 and have the worst record in baseball.  Matt should be hoping for a chance to show Chicago what he has next season, and we will continue his story with each step.
