  • Post 37's Woolums is quick to catch on with the bat

    Tyler Woolums is used to the question now.

    “I do get that a lot. People tell me I have a baseball build, but they say I look like a second baseman or an outfielder,” said Woolums, 19, who stands 5 feet 11 and weighs 170 pounds. “I’m trying to change that. I’d like to grow a couple inches and put on a little mass.”
