The 2006 season was the crowning achievment in the revitalization of UK baseball.  The Cats won the Southeastern Conference Championship and featured the 2006 SEC player of the year in 1b Ryan Strieby and national coach of the year John Cohen.  The 2008 minor league sesaon has seen a reunion of Strieby and 3b Michael Bertram at AA Erie.  With that reunion in mind I thought we’d look at where the members of the 2006 championship team are in the minor leagues.
