The deejay "Mazr" was in the house here in Fort Myers. But the initial reviews were a bit rocky.
"I was just playing my stuff in the weight room," Mazr said. "It got turned off in about four minutes."
Four minutes into a one-hour mix means it didn't take long for the audience to cry "uncle." Undaunted, Mazr glanced around the Twins' clubhouse.
"I'm taking it slow," he said. "I'm approaching the Australian guys first because they love house music there. Then I'll go from there and try to convert the others."
By night, in the offseason, he is Mazr the deejay, standing in front of the microphones in the clubs of Seattle. Come baseball season, he is Trevor May, pitching prospect extraordinaire for the Minnesota Twins. He is a hard-throwing right-hander who walks to the mound with just one intention: strike out the hitter.
"That's kind of my thing," he said. "It's like in high school where you try to strike everybody out."
Along with another hard-throwing right-hander, Alex Meyer, he could help form the next generation of M&M Boys and lead the team back to the glory days. I really appreciate a fellow who rears back, fires his fastball and says, "See if you can hit this!"
