WSC Birth Years: Chris Getz

Card #18 - Chris Getz

Born: August 30, 1983

Chris has been one of the brightest spots in the rookie department. Solid defense has always followed Getz on the baseball diamond, but lately he has found a great offensive skill, as well.

Chris has found a home in the lower third of the order, strengthening what is usually a weak part of the lineup. His speed has helped him to stretch out many hits into extra bases and bring the long lost art of the stolen base back to the South Side. Going into August 2009, he was ranked first in several rookie categories, including runs and total bases.

While it's true, Chris is still learning, he has displayed the ability to learn from his mistakes and the skills of a veteran contact hitter.
