A handsome payoff is at hand for SS Brian Roberts, a tireless worker and self-made player. He wasn't recruited out of high school by any college except North Carolina, where his father Mike coached. He starred there for two years and continued his outstanding play this spring at South Carolina, where he transferred after his father was forced out at UNC. Roberts' strengths are his intangibles. He has outstanding instincts in the field and on the bases. He swings the bat well from both sides and broke the Southeastern Conference record for stolen bases, set a year ago by South Carolina's Mike Curry. He led the nation by a wide margin. Roberts is unusually strong for his size. He will need to put more balls on the ground to better use his speed in pro ball. Though he has worked hard to make himself a quality shortstop, not everyone sees him at that position. He made more believers this spring by showing plus arm strength.
