Braves Quote For The Day II ... One Degree Of Luis Salazar

There is yet another article out this week about the Braves single-A Lynchburg manager Luis Salazar. This time from Sports Illustrated, here is a great quote from that article:

HOLLYWOOD HAS "six degrees of Kevin Bacon." Baseball has "one degree of Luis Salazar." "Louie," says Rafael Belliard, a former major league infielder, now a Tigers coach, "knows everyone." Part of this is the math. Play and coach for nine organizations over 30-some years and you'll meet a few people along the way. But it's mostly because of Salazar's personality. He's relentlessly outgoing, quick to laugh, and he remembers names and games with a stunning level of precision. "Such a great guy to be around, always has been," says Derek Botelho, a former major league pitcher who met Salazar playing winter ball in the 1980s and is now the Lynchburg pitching coach. "He respects baseball and he respects people, so his relationships run deep."

Read the full article here. It is well worth reading, and one of the better articles written about Salazar since the incident in Spring Training.
