Derek Hill Influenced by Father to Play Baseball

Derek Hill is in his second professional season in the Detroit Tigers organization, after being a first round selection in the 2014 MLB Draft.  Signing with the Tigers out of high school, he still has work to do to improve his game, especially with his fielding.

Derek’ decision to pursue a baseball career  was influenced by his father, Orsino HIll, a former first-round pick of the Cincinnati Reds in the 1982 MLB January Draft, who toiled for eleven seasons without reaching the major leagues.  Now, Orsino is a major league scout.
