Billy Wagner’s son among Fayetteville Woodpeckers Astros prospects

Fayetteville Woodpeckers infielder Chad Stevens made ESPN SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays for his web gem in Saturday's game against Fredericksburg.

The Fayetteville Woodpeckers made No. 3 on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 plays this weekend thanks to a defensive gem from newcomer Chad Stevens.

In Saturday’s game at Segra, the 2021 MLB draft pick out of Portland fielded a chopper beyond the third-base line, pivoted mid-leap and overhanded a 150-foot-long heave from the outfield grass in foul territory to beat the Fredericksburg Nationals’ baserunner, who was subsequently ejected for arguing the call.
