We had a lot of applicants,” said Walker “It got down to three, and got down to two last night and we finally came to a decision around 8:45 p.m. last night and I believe it’s the right decision.”According to Walker, Powers has the “right stuff” to be able and help the program and he has the utmost confidence in Powers to do the right thing.“I have the utmost respect for his father,” Walker said. “That’s not to say I don’t for him as well, but he comes from a long lineage of baseball and he’s going to do it the right way.
