"Hi Trent," the message began. "Are you by chance the one that wrote the article in the Mormon Times about Cale Iorg?"
The message came from a kid named Mitchell Toone in Tuscon, Ariz. We shared the same last name but I had never heard of him, although it was determined later that we were distant relatives. I confirmed I wrote the June 30 Mormon Times cover story about Cale Iorg, a member of the LDS Church and then an infielder for the Toledo Mud Hens, the AAA affiliate of the Detroit Tigers. I asked Mitchell if he somehow knew Cale or was a big baseball fan?
The 21-year-old ignored my questions, but once he knew I was the guy he was looking for, he unfolded a tale that gave me goose bumps.
