Guest Blogger-Andrew Laughter
Hey everyone. My name is Andrew Laughter (like slaughter) and I am a pitcher for the Rangers organization and currently playing on the Suprise Rafters. I went to college in the sportsman’s paradise at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and was drafted last year. This year was a good learning experience for me and a lot of fun. I was excited to get the opportunity to play in the AFL. There is a lot of great talent here and the guys show it off every day. I am however looking forward to this offseason where I will be spending a lot of time in the woods chasing down big whitetails going on the occasional duck hunt. I will mostly be out in Alabama and Louisiana, but im hoping to get out to Mississippi as well. Our Rafters team consists of a few fellow hunters, so we spend some time each day telling hunting stories and expressing our excitement for the upcoming season. While playing in the fall league, I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of good guys from other organizations. Especially guys I have played against all year long. Speaking of great guys, our bullpen out here is a lot of fun. We have covered just about every topic possible while here. Everything from politics to any wrestler to ever step in the ring in WWE. Politics took up most of the time though. We had some great debates during the presidential election.
The fall league is winding down (4 days left) and I’m very excited. It will be a much needed break to allow my body to recover from the long season. Im looking forward to going home and seeing my family and friends, and filling up my refrigerator with venison. If anyone has and questions or comments feel free to leave them. I’ll try my best to answer them all. See everyone in spring training. Happy holidays and happy hunting!
