Time To Get Started!

With the start of the Fall League only six days away I thought it might be a good time to share a few of the things that are going through my mind before the start of the league, but first I will tell you a little bit about me.

My name is Jordan Swagerty. I am from Dallas, Texas and I was taken as a pitcher by the St. Louis Cardinals in the second round of the 2010 draft. For the last two years, I played baseball at Arizona State University. I was a draft eligible sophomore so I only had two years of college. During my time at ASU I learned many things that will help me in life and also gained knowledge about the game of baseball.

I think the AFL will be an experience that I will take with me for the rest of my life. It will be my professional debut. Just hearing that is exciting and a moment that I have waited for since I started playing baseball at the age of three. I am looking forward to playing with the top Minor League players around the league. This will be a challenge but one that I have prepared for. It is always an exciting time when you get to play with the top players. I know it will be a challenge but what a way to get your feet wet in professional baseball.

I will be playing for the Surprise Rafters, which uses the Rangers and Royals spring training complex. This is an exciting time and I can’t wait to get out there.

We loved you at ASU and are so glad to see you’re playing in the AFL. You made us proud then–you make us proud now! Looking forward to seeing you play for many, many years to come and continuing the ASU legacy! Go Devils!

Good luck Swags! We will miss you at ASU but it’s good to see you in the Arizona Fall League! Good luck the rest of the way! GO DEVILS!

Get your swag on!!! Jordan your truly an inspiration to me. I am trying to buy up all your cards with the magic signature they will go nice with my collection of swag gear. My wife is mad at me for taking up all the space in the den with swag gear. Oh well.
