A nice feel good story of the day for a kid that works his rear end off.  Remember Billy McKinney? Well... we love the kid, and so do others. He's headed to the AFL Fall Star's Game. has the story:

" Billy McKinney and Royals No. 11 Nicky Lopez were named the winners of the Fall Stars Final 2 Fan Vote... McKinney barely edged out teammate and No. 78 overall prospect Estevan Florial in the voting, along with Angels No. 3 prospect Matt Thaiss. Playing first base instead of his regular outfield position, McKinney is slashing .310/.373/.500 for the Scottsdale Scorpions with one home run in 42 at-bats."

I have hunch we'll be seeing this kid real soon, I do.  Lately all I read about is McKinney and all the work he's putting in.  I love when the Yankees tout certain players, and then guys like McKinney starts to turn heads.  It's cool.

Anyway... congrats to McKinney. We love you over here at BYB.  Come do an interview with us, will ya?
