a stumbling start

Spring training hasn’t even begun yet and already another Mississippian in the big leagues has gone down with an injury. Nettleton native Bill Hall will be sidelined 4-6 weeks because of a calf injury, the Milwaukee Brewers announced today. Hall, expected to be Milwaukee’s regular third baseman, apparently was injured while working out on his own. He got a fat contract after blasting 35 home runs for the Brewers in 2006 but has struggled ever since. He hit just .254 with 14 homers in 2007 and .225 with 15 last year. This is not the kind of start he wanted to his 2009 campaign.
