Damon Minor is clearly one of the top Traveler players of all-time.  He and his brother Ryan challenged each other at the top of every offensive category.  In fact without each other, both would be considered the most prolific home run hitter in Traveler history.  In 1993 Damon Minor hit an amazing 25 Home Runs in 209 at bats.  That is a pace of 1 home run per 8.3 at bats.  This has been unmatched in the history of the program.  In the Hays Kansas 4th of July tournament Damon crushed 4 home runs on 4 consecutive plate appearances. All 4 were monster shots that left the crowd standing in awe of his power and ability to be consistant at the plate.

Damon was an excpetional first baseman as well.  His 6'7 inch frame allowed him tremendous range on throws.  Defensively he also was the left handed ace on the mound his 1993 year, where he pitched the Travelers into the National Regional tournament that was hosted in Screen Shot 2019 06 04 at 71649 AMWoodward.  

At the end of the day Damon Minor goes down as not only a great player but one of the hardest working players in the history of the program.  He worked hard and gained speed and agility throughout his career.  Contrary to the belief of most scouts saying he would never make it to the big leagues, Damon Minor proved them wrong.  Damon became the first baseman for the San Franciso Giants and at one point was hitting in the 5-hole behind MLB Hall of Famer Barry Bonds.

Damon Minor was a great Traveler and tremendous team mate.  He always cared about everyone and put forth the effort to help his team become winnners on and off the field.  He is remembered most for his character and work ethic that separated him into a category of his own.
