Former MDC baseball standout David Vidal was recently signed by the Miami Marlins after he led Puerto Rico to the Caribbean Series Championship. Now the 27-year-old is headed to Jacksonville to play for the Marlins’ Double-A team. “David is an unbelievable hitter,” said MDC pitching coach Kevin Long. “There were times when opponents wouldn’t even pitch to him the entire game. They would just walk him intentionally.” Last year, Vidal played independent ball and hit 26 homers in just 85 games. In the Caribbean Series, he hit a home run in a semifinal win over Venezuela and a double in the championship victory over Mexico. In six games overall, he stroked 10 hits, including three homers. – WV
