Game number two for Wil Myers out of High Point Wesleyan, now with the Burlington Royals of the Appalachian League, and last night(Thursday 8/21) it was dynamite for Myers as hit his first home run as an 18 year-old professional baseball player.

Myers lined up as the B’ Royals catcher last evening and even though the Royals lost to Johnson City, Myers got his and hopefully he is on his way.

from the Burlington Royals stat page:
HR: Myers, W (1, 2nd inning off Russell, 0 on, 1 out).

    Wil Myers had a triple and homer and 4RBI’s for the Burlington Royals. The batting average was not all that great, but the power numbers were solid…….
