If Jamie McMillan were the kind of guy who took obvious signs to heart, he’d be sitting in an office cubicle somewhere in Georgia working for a bi-weekly paycheck like most everyone else.

Because he’s not, he gets up every day and pursues a dream he’s had since his dad taught him how to swing a baseball bat when he was 4 years old.

“Taught him to swing left-handed,” points out Tom McMillan, the proud papa who sat in the first row of Fort Marcy Ballpark’s scorching concrete box seats while his son, a jack-of-all-trades infielder from the Trinidad Triggers won Monday afternoon’s Pecos League All-Star Game home run derby.
