Coach Corbin Quote: Kurt made the move from outfield to first base in the fall. We are waiting for him to blossom because he has a lot of potential. He is a tall, thin athlete who possesses pretty good power in his bat. He has made a pretty quick transition to first and gives us a pretty good target if he can play there.
