Say hello to the Diamondbacks’ Adam Eaton

Hi everybody. My name is Adam Eaton and I’m in Triple-A with the Arizona Diamondbacks. I was just promoted up to Reno about a week ago.

I went to Miami of Ohio and was a 19th round Draft pick in 2010. It was a tough decision to sign, but I’m happy with my decision now.

I started out in rookie ball in Missoula, Montana. In 2011, I began in Visalia in the California League and went to Double-a midway through the season. Won the Southern League championship in Mobile. I was then invited to the Arizona fall league, which is a very prestigious league. I was very excited to be invited to that. I ended up being named to the all-prospect team which was a very prestigious award for me.

I was invited to the Rookie Career Development Program in Washington, D.C., in January, where I met many important and knowledgeable

Saw considerable time in big league camp this spring.

people within Major League Baseball.  It was an opportunity of a lifetime to listen to them to get a better understanding of things like the media and finances, and how to act like a Major Leaguer when you get there for the first time.

I was invited to Major League camp this spring, which was another great opportunity for me to continue to develop as a player. I learned an incredible amount through that process. I got to play alongside all the Arizona Diamondbacks. It was a great benefit to me.

After I got sent down from big league camp, I was sent back to Mobile, where I played for about a week and a half, then I got moved up because of injuries at the big league level. Every time you get moved up, it’s an experience in terms of packing up all of your stuff and figuring out a way to get you and your stuff across the country.

This move to Reno has been relatively stress free. Getting set up here, everyone has welcomed me with open arms. I’m looking forward to staying here as long as I’m allowed to. I look forward to a great 2012 season and keeping you all updated on what I’m doing and what I hope to accomplish.

    It’s been great having you here in Reno nv. We love to come watch you play because you are a phenomenal athlete and you play the game with great entinsity and passion. You play the game the way it is supposed to be played. The time you spend with fans after the games is awesome, not a lot of guys do this and those who do inspire the little kids to want to play. My son loves following you either live at the games or out of town drives to watch you, if it’s a game we can’t make he watches it on or on the radio. He loves the game more than anyone I know and you are his role model and he is your biggest fan. Thank you for your hospitality!

    Adam, you deserve every ounce of success that has come your way. You have become a hero and role-model in Springfield! I am ridiculously lucky to have gotten to play along side of you. I know that so much more success lies in your future and it’s all because of your dedication and relentless attitude (well and the obvious reason that you are a phenominal baseball player in so many ways). You have taught everyone that has every seen you practice/train a lesson about what true dedication is and looks like. I just wanted to give you a shout out because you really deserve it man. I do not need to say this because I know you will do so anyways but, keep it up! You are really something special.
