A's Prospect Trades Bat for Collar

As reported at American Papist and elsewhere, Oakland A's minor leaguer Grant Desme -- a 24 year-old speed-power threat, who in 2009 was the only player in the minor leagues to steal 30 bases and hit 30 homers -- announced last Friday that he's retiring from baseball to follow God's call to the Catholic priesthood.  Desme noted that he'd been wrestling with the decision for many months: "I love the game, but I'm going to aspire to higher things."  Well done.
