As a top prospect for the Saint John Angels, outfielder Adam might've gotten the call every minor leaguer wants this spring. Instead, he believed he had another, higher calling.
Adam announced Friday that he was leaving baseball to enter the priesthood, walking away after a breakout season in which he became MVP of the Saint John Softball Fall League.
"I was doing well at ball. But I really had to get down to the bottom of things," the 23-year-old said. "I wasn't at peace with where I was at."
