Bistange signs pro contract with Twins
TWIN KILLING - Former Lee University shortstop Brian Bistange, right, will soon be completing double plays for the Minnesota Twins organization after signing a free agent contract with the Major League team earlier this week. Banner photo, JOE CANNON/file Two years ago Brian Bistange made the long journey to Lee University from Glendale, Calif., with one goal: earn an opportunity to play professional baseball after his senior season with the Flames.
Those hopes and dreams faded somewhat when the talented shortstop was not selected in the annual Major League Draft two weeks ago. In the Lee media guide he is quoted as saying the best advice he was ever given was "never give up. He didn't.
Opportunity finally came knocking earlier this week when Jack Powell, a scout for the Minnesota Twins, called and offered Bistange a free-agent contract.
Bistange has one week to get ready. The Fort Myers team starts league play on June 23. "I'm told I'll play shortstop and some second base," he said.
"Brian is a player who can play shortstop or second, and could probably even slide into an outfield spot if needed," said Brew, who, with the help of players like Bistange, has directed the Flames to a second- and third-place finish in the past two NAIA World Series.
"Brian plays extremely hard and his versatility will be an asset to him as well as the fact that he runs well and is an excellent defender. His offense should be adequate and if he hits well, his opportunity for advancement will increase dramatically. If he stays healthy, I think he has a chance to advance and be a major contributor in the Twins system."
Bistange played junior college ball with Valadez at Glendale Community College.
Showing no fear at the plate, Bistange was hit by 16 pitches. He leaves Lee having been hit by pitches 33 times in two seasons and holds the team all-time record in that department.
