Former Huskie baseball player Bobby Stevens (2006-08) was recently promoted in the Baltimore Orioles organization.  The second baseman was moved from the Orioles' Advanced A team (Frederick Keys) to their AA team (Bowie Baysox).  Baltimore's 16th round pick in 2008 was hitting .241 with six homers and 21 RBI in 64 games for the Keys this season before getting moved up.  Congrats to Mr. Stevens as he continues to progress toward his goal of reaching the Majors!
