For much of Seamus Curran’s career, he has played alongside and against more seasoned players.
Drafted by the Baltimore Orioles out of Agawam (Mass.) High School in 2015, the 6-foot-6-inch slugger began his career at just 17, some 2½ years younger than the average player in the rookie Gulf Coast League.
Now 21, Curran is finding more comfort in being closer in age to the rest of his Class-A Delmarva (Md.) Shorebirds clubhouse.
“This is going to be my Rule 5 year this year and I’m still only 21,” Curran noted. “It’s good to finally play with guys that are kind of my age. Mostly, I was playing with and against guys that were 3-4 years older, just graduating college. It’s good to have guys my age in the locker room.”
