Tom Keegan: Conner VanCleave makes leap from Holcomb to Hoglund

Conner VanCleave isn’t like most athletes packed with baseball potential. For one thing, he stands 6-foot-7. For another, he plays three sports. Also, he’s not easy to label. Is he a pitcher? A first baseman? An outfielder? Yes, yes and yes. Give him a ball and he’ll have a ball playing with it until the classroom bell or dinner bell rings. By Tom Keegan
