TTM Success: Donny Sands
Yankees minor league catcher Donny Sands signed my card c/o the Charleston Riverdogs. It was the only card of Sands I had, so I shipped off this Bowman Chrome Gold & Black Refractor, and the signature stuck perfectly. I did run an eraser over the card prior to sending to try and remove a little gloss.
According to MLB.com, Sands is the Yankees #26 overall prospect. He was converted to catcher from 3B, and is by and large still learning the position. Still, the hit tool is there. He's off to a bit of a slow start at Charleston, so hopefully he heats up soon. It can't be easy learning to catch, while still staying sharp offensively.
