Former West Indies Cricketer Kieran Powell says his surprising transition to baseball is going well, despite the challenge of changing his cricket swing to fit baseball’s style.

Powell, 25, was the world’s 76th-ranked batsman according to the International Cricket Council’s website

Recently, scouts from over 11 major league teams came out to watch his performance in a private workout at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL, where he has been training for the past 5 weeks. Scouts included the Dodgers, Tigers, Giants, Brewers, Mets, Reds, Pirates and A’s.

The player, who has not been recalled to the West Indies since a falling out in 2014 believes he had done a good job of adjusting.
