Interviewed By Mike Duffy
Kole Enright was on the path to college until the scout who recruited him resigned and Kole’s scholarship was unfortunately pulled. Luckily, that June he was drafted in the third round by the Texas Rangers with the 99th pick of the 2016 Draft. He is currently the #22 Prospect for the Texas Rangers and is rising rapidly. Recently he was visited by Adrian Beltre and he shared with Kole the wisdom of making sure to always enjoy the game. He also told him to make sure to always have a better attitude than your talent level.
