Indy Baseball Chatter
By Bob Wirz
David Peralta, one of those who started out in an Independent league and eventually had his contract sold (Arizona), hit .346 with 42 RBI in only 51 games for Visalia, CA. The infielder had time with both Amarillo, TX and Wichita, KS in the American Association.
On the mound, Eddie McKiernan was sold to Arizona this summer by Lincoln, NE of the American Association and he won eight of 11 decisions (3.51 ERA) as a starter at Visalia. Mark Serrano, sold by Laredo, TX (American Association), was another Arizona farmhand who excelled. He was a combined 6-2, 3.02 between Classes AA and AAA.
