In our continued effort to connect fans with the Shorebirds players, the Shorebirds are facilitating an online question and answer session with second baseman L.J. Hoes and left fielder Kyle Hudson. Hoes was selected in the 3rd round of the 2008 out of St. Johns High School in Washington, D.C., while Hudson was selected in the fourth round of the 2008 out of the University of Illinois.
Kyle Hudson and L.J. Hoes will answer fans questions on theshorebirds.com and The Shorebirds Blog. To submit a question for either L.J or Kyle, simply send an email to Bret Lasky at firstname.lastname@example.org. In submitting questions for L.J. and Kyle, please include your name and hometown.
The Shorebirds will select 10 questions for both athletes. They will answer your questions on theshorebirds.com. The deadline to submit questions for L.J. and Kyle is Wednesday, July 22nd at noon. Their transcribed answers will be available on Thursday, July 23rd in both written form and as an audio attachment.
Both players have been staples in the Shorebirds order through the first 87 games of the season. L.J. is hitting .245 with 11 doubles and 29 RBIs as a 19-year old in the South Atlantic League. Meantime, Hudson ranks second on the Shorebirds with a batting average of .293. He also is second on the club with 79 and 32 base-on-balls.

I'd like to see L.J. hitting better, but he's impressing scouts with his speed and hard play, so there's that.
