Garin Cecchini is hard not to notice on a baseball field, no matter the circumstances.
You’ll hear him shouting back and forth with teammates during infield drills before games, and hours later he’ll still be calling encouragement to his pitcher from third base in a near-empty stadium during extra innings.
But this year with High-A Salem, after a solid if unspectacular full-season debut in 2012 with Greenville, Cecchini is making opponents, teammates and scouts alike take note of his bat -- and he’s doing it pretty much every day.
“His consistency is just unbelievable, really,” Salem second baseman Sean Coyle said of his teammate and high school friend Cecchini. “Every day, he feels the same. He doesn’t come out and say, 'Man, I’m feeling really good today,' and he never comes out and says, 'Man, I’m feeling really bad today.' "
