Former MLB player Darnell McDonald recently spoke at Runyon Field, which is a location that hits home with him due to playing in the Joe Andenucio Memorial baseball tournament there over 20 years ago. He spoke to the audience about what it was like to play in the field back then, as well as shared many of his memories of playing in the World Series and at the famous Fenway Park in Boston. In addition to that, McDonald described how thankful he is for all of the friends and opportunities he has had over the course of his career.
The Fort Collins, Colorado native was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in 1997 as the 26th overall pick in the amateur entry draft. However, he didn’t make his MLB debut until April 30, 2004 when he hit the field for the first time for the Orioles. He bounced around between a lot of professional teams and have been on the roster for the Minnesota Twins, Cincinnati Red, Boston Red Sox, New York Yanks and lastly the Chicago Cubs just prior to retiring from the sport in 2013.
McDonald traveled to Runyon Field at the end of January to share stories of some of his experiences as a pro player with his fans in the audience. Overall it was a great and memorable experience for everyone who got to attend.
