  1. Nothing ever surprises me with Clint – you cannot meet a better person and a great player. I have always told my son to do things like Clint and to handle himself like Clint – hopefully he will get to the bigs one day and the kids would have a real role model!!!!

  2. Tony- You took the words right out of my mouth. NOTHING CLINT MOORE DOES SHOULD SURPRISE ANYONE!

  3. Clint has worked hard his whole life. When he played Pinto and Mustang baseball at PG he was one of, if not,the smallest player out there but that did not stop him. He worked year round when other kids were just sitting around or doing other things besides working on their game. The neat thing was he did it on his own. Clint deserves the recognition he is getting and I hope that he continues to do well. Credit needs to go to his parents also for raising such a good person and taking the time to do the right things with him. Good luck to Clint and I look forward to reading more good things about him and the Army team.
