Back Where He Started

July 20, 2014, 11:00 PM

Back Where He Started
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Hartford, South Dakota is just 12 miles from the Canaries stadium in Sioux Falls, but Sam Lind has traveled much further than that. After a successful career at Roosevelt high school, Lind’s college journey brought him to four schools in six years. He capped off a remarkable senior season by being named an All-American, and the MVP of the NAIA World Series. Next up was his shot at professional baseball.

“And then after the season was over. I was waiting to see if I was going to be drafted or signed as a free agent, which I thought might happen for a minute but it didn’t. I came home and we arranged a tryout, I came and tried out and made the team,” said Lind.

But the birds play no favorites. Lind was not signed to the canaries because he was a local kid. Manager Steve Shirley is quick to point out that he was signed because he’s a talented, multi-tool player who has proven himself on the diamond.

“He’s earned the right to be on the field. It really doesn’t have much to do with being a local kid. I got good reports before and it just so happened that he was from here. When he came out and worked out with us he showed a lot of ability, and in the games he shown a lot of ability so he’s earned the right to be on the field,” said Shirley.

Lind is having a strong year for the birds, he is second on the team in triples, and has emerged as a power source with 2 home runs in his last 7 games. However, he is still adjusting to pro game, and knows he has room for improvement if he wants to get to the next level.

“I have to work on my consistency at the plate. Just trying to figure it out and get a little bit smarter than the pitchers, try and get a head of the pitchers and figure out how they’re trying to pitch me. I also want to get a little bit faster too. When I hit this offseason I’m going to get faster and stronger,” said Lind.

It’s no secret that nearly everyone who steps on the baseball diamond has dreams of the major Leagues. Lind is no different.  Right now he wants to accomplish short term goals with the Independent ball before looking too far ahead. 

“It’s definitely a goal of mine, as it is pretty much every player, but it’s very distant. It’s one of my goals that will take a lot more short term to get there before I can reach that goal,” said Lind.

It’s yet to be determined where Lind’s baseball career will take him, but for now, it’s certainly nice to have come full circle and be back home.

“I do enjoy seeing my parents and my brother a lot more. I’ve been away from my brothers for five or six years now, with an exception of a holiday here of there, so it’s great being at home and getting close to my family again,” said Lind.
