If you’re new here, Layne Jr was one of my favorite prospects. We were lucky enough to do an interview with him and he’s just a nice down to earth guy with a sense of humor. He’s also got talent. He is actually leading the Somerset Patriots with a 0.90 earned run average in 10 innings pitched. He’s allowed 1 run on 3 hits, 3 walks and has struck out 11 batters. Opponents are hitting .086 against him currently.
The Patriots feature players from mostly the New Jersey area and have an 8-4 record. They play at TD Bank Ballpark which has been named Ballpark Digest?s Best Independent Minor League Ballpark in recent years.
