Tater Tuesday – Victor Roache (2013)

Welcome to Tater Tuesday on the blog. Each week I’ll take a look at home runs or – as the Great George Scott called them – taters. Usually, this will be home runs by a Timber Rattlers player.

This will be the last Tater Tuesday of the offseason. I may bring it back in one form or another during the season. But, for now, I will turn the feature over to Victor Roache.
