Another new addition to the Majors infield, fans will be excited to see come opening day, we asked the Hilltoppers infielder what Majors fans can expect from him when they see him in the lineup and patrolling 1st base “The fans can expect from me is a left-handed power bat that likes to work the gaps, looking to make an impact every time I’m up at the plate. (I’m)Excited to be playing in front of the best fans in the IBL and bringing home another championship come opening day!”
With the first baseman joining the Majors, Roop Chanderdat was asked about the new infielder “Kayne is a left-handed power hitter that likes to go gap to gap. He is another hard-working young player that wants to get better."
