Following the progress of South Jersey native Matt Szczur through baseball's minor leagues this season, we have seen him shine at the A ball level. Now comes his next challenge - conquer AA and get closer to the major leagues.
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 future for Matt Szczur will hopefully involve wearing a Chicago Cubs jersey within the next few years, and his recent play over the last month has him on course to take the next step toward the dream of this product of South Jersey.
