Life in the Major Leagues

Miami Marlins pitcher Steve Cishek will be speaking at the Library on Saturday, December 28 at 1:00 p.m. Cishek grew up in Falmouth, MA and graduated from Falmouth High School in 2005. He was involved in sports growing up and like so many young boys, dreamed of being a professional athlete. He attended Carson-Newman College, a small D2 school in Jefferson City, TN and played baseball there. He was drafted his junior year in the 5th round of the 2007 draft by the (then) Florida Marlins (they are now the Miami Marlins). He played in the minor leagues until September 2010 when he was called up to the majors. Since then he has set several club records and was named the Marlins Rookie of the Year in 2011. He is now the team's closer and currently holds the longest active consecutive saves streak in all of Major League Baseball. 
"This will be a great opportunity for students and baseball fans to come by and meet a Major League ballplayer and find out how a Massachusetts native made it to the big leagues!" said Friends of the Library President Roni Haywood.
