I stayed in South Bend the summer he was drafted.

A.J. and I had a mutual friend who was also in town for the summer. The three of us had some beers at Corby's right after he signed. Corby's is a lot different during the summer. It doesn't get crowded and people mostly sit outside when they open up the back. We had the bar area to ourselves that night and enjoyed a few pints while we shot the shit.

He was assigned to the Silverhawks initially. My buddy and I caught a lot of their games that summer. I didn't think I'd enjoy a summer in South Bend, but A.J. helped make it a good one.
