Young baseball players usually have a veteran player they idolize. They follow that famous someone that they would like to be when they grow up. Shortstops want to be like Cal Ripken, Jr. Most pitchers could choose from Nolan Ryan or even Roger Clemens. Hagerstown Suns pitcher Zach Baldwin breaks the mold a little. If he could, Baldwin would like to be Cal Bailey. Cal Bailey is an obscure name in many circles.
