“He’s confident he’s going to make it happen,” said C.J. Wamsley, Keith’s hitting coach in High-A West Michigan last season. “It’s special, it’s different. You don’t see that a ton to that magnitude. We’ve been fortunate to have a lot of guys with that mentality, but Colt goes above and beyond. I don’t want to say ‘above and beyond,’ but the dude goes hard.”
