Players shine as Florence Y’alls improve on the season

Y'alls players Dakota Hunley (2) and Mitch Piatnik (11) as the Florence Y'alls defeated the Lexington Legends 14-3 in the season opener of the Battle of the Bourbon Trail July 31, 2020 at UC Health Stadium, Florence, Ky.

After struggling to find their footing in recent weeks, the Florence Y'alls have taken several steps in the right direction.

The first step came on Wednesday, when starting pitcher Christian Tripp signed a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers organization. 

“We thought he would have a real shot of getting picked up but we didn’t know how quick it would be," Y'alls manager Brian White told the Enquirer. "It happened all of a sudden. One morning the Brewers just randomly called and said they wanted to purchase his contract, so that was pretty quick."

Tripp has since left the Y'alls to train in Arizona in the Brewers system. He is expected to join the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (High-A) afterwards.

Tripp changed from reliever to starter this season for the Y'alls. He started four games and went 0-1 with a 4.90 ERA.
