John Toppa looks good.....SNAP IT!!! He spent the off season working on an elite level swing pattern, allowing the barrel to enter early, get on plane and stay long through.

This tweet references the California Winter League, for which John Toppa is preparing for:


>The California Winter League is an instructional showcase league for free agent baseball players who are looking to earn a professional contract before spring training begins. The league was created by Andrew Starke in 2010. The league takes place in Palm Springs, CA at the Palm Springs Stadium complex which is a former spring training facility of the Angels. In 2019, the CWL will celebrate its 10th season as players report to Palm Springs on February 4th, 2019. Over the previous 9 seasons, over 650 former CWL players have earned a contract following the CWL and gone on to play professionally.<

>The purpose of the California Winter League is to provide coaching and an avenue for players to get noticed by scouts with the ultimate goal of signing a professional contract. Past players have signed with any of various Independent baseball leagues and MLB organizations. Over the past nine seasons the California Winter League has had over forty percent of its players get signed to play professionally after the winter league ended.<

Never would have guessed this, but I have to wonder if Aaron Hill is going to get a look from the Orioles organization. Both Ryan Fuller (who went to Avery Point and UConn) and Ty Moore work for the Orioles. Aaron Hill has been playing independent league baseball since his days in Storrs.

John Toppa has joined an independent league team. Also, always a treat to have Ric Flair as part of a tweet:
