Gilmore At AA Birmingham
By John Campbell, TV9 Sports
Birmingham-Former City High baseball standout Jon Gilmore finds himself at AA Birmingham this summer. The Barons are a farm club of the Chicago White Sox.
The Sox have shifted Gilmore from the infield to the outfield, a move necessitated an injury to his rotator cuff. He is batting 167.
In 2007, Gilmore became, and still is, the highest drafted Iowa prep player when he was selected by the Atlanta Braves.
