2003 Year In Review
December 29, 2003
A Year ago Jack McKeon was sitting on his farm in North Carolina, out of baseball and prospects. Carmelo Anthony was a freshman at Syracuse, known only to college hoops buffs. And Dontrelle Willis was a high-kicking southpaw for the Jupiter Hammerheads of the Class A Florida State League. Fast-forward 12 months. McKeon managed the Marlins to a world championship; Anthony led the Orangemen to the national title and is now a teenage millionaire on the revitalized Nuggets; and Willis went 14-6 while turning Floridians into Marlins fans. What a difference a year makes.
