In Iowa, we wallow through winter's weary way, dreaming of a warm summer's balmy breeze and baseball. Spring training is soon to be here and so we thought we should touch base with Nic Ungs. Here's a pre-season update on our Florida-based, Ghost Player, pro ball player:
"I hope all is well up in Iowa. I am trying to stay warm but it seems a little colder down spit this year. We got 6 inches of snow and it just shut down this city for a week. Workouts are going great. My arm feels brand new, but coming off surgery it's been hard to get some looks. I have signed with an independent league team and I am throwing for a Cubs' scout (I think) in the next 10 days.
It would really be nice to wear that Cubs uniform. I will keep you in the loop. I hope all is well and baseball season is just around the corner. - Nic Ungs
You may recall Ungs (as well as a few other Ghost Players-Mike Schuster, Ted Kruse, Nic Hunt and Ron Lucas) were in the MLB Network, made-for-TV production, TRIUMPH & TRAGEDY: THE1919 CHICAGO WHITE SOX. The movie was aired on the MLB Network. DreamCatcher Productions acted as production assistant for the shoot in Clinton, Iowa. Watch behind the scenes video on Youtube.
