Great Falls manager Chris Cron on 2010 5th round draft pick and Great Falls 1B Andy Wilkins:

BASEBALL OFFICIALS and the writers who quiz them are always making comparisons. So Cron was asked about Wilkins, who has a powerful left-handed stroke at the dish. Turns out he’s got a fellow in mind.

“I want to say a certain guy, because back in the day when this kid came up he was a third baseman, just like Andy,” Cron said. “He was a first baseman, and then he became a DH. He’s still playing and he’s having a Hall-of-Fame career.”

Any idea who the skipper is referring to?

“Back in the day,” said Cron, ” Jim Thome looked very similar to Andy Wilkins.”
