Many numbers from outfielder Mike O'Neill's first full pro season could excite him, but it's a word that resonates with him. "When you say 'leadoff,' my eyes light up," O'Neill said. "I like to be the sparkplug for the offense. I want to be the person who gets on base, so I can create things with my speed, make things happen for the hitters behind me. That's my game."
