Good news from a good guy.

I don't know how many of you have followed the link on the right side of the page to "A Season in Savannah," my 2002 article on former Stanford star Paul Carey, the Cardinal's all-time home run leader and 1987 College World Series hero, whose major-league playing career was undermined by injuries.

If you have, you might be interested in the following update from Todd Wills of the Dallas Morning News. Carey spent the 2003 season as the Rangers' AA Frisco (Texas) Roughriders batting coach, and is now considering a move toward a front-office career:

Carey, the RoughRiders' hitting instructor, recently completed a 10-week mentorship with the organization, learning the day-to-day operations of working in a baseball front office. The mentorship is a prerequisite for a master's degree Carey is working on in sports management.

Carey, 35, learned the public relations side of the business, met with sponsors, sold tickets and yes even dressed up as Santa Claus for a recent team function at Dr Pepper/Seven Up Ballpark. ...

He won over most of his Double-A hitters last season with his instruction in the batting cages. Now there are those who will swear by him if he decides to try the business side of the game.

"Paul might be at a crossroad in his life," RoughRiders president Mike McCall said. "He has a taste in the business side now. It will be interesting to see what he does in his career.

"I know if he decided to go into the business of baseball, he has a home here with us."

Carey definitely cuts a Paul Bunyan figure, but he attends to the smallest detail. He has a great mind for the game and is a born leader, and I hope he goes far.
