TTM Success - Heston Kjerstad

Before he was drafted #2 overall this past June, I had sent a TTM request to Heston Kjerstad.  I got the card back, and now he is an Oriole.  That was definitely not planned, as it was a common thought that the Orioles would choose Austin Martin.  My TTM request to Martin is still out there, somewhere, but I am happy the Kjerstad did come back.

Kjerstad (b. 1999) was the second overall pick in the 2020 June Amateur Draft by the Orioles.  He had played 3 seasons at the University of Arkansas, his third season cut short by the COVID outbreak.

In his collegiate career, Kjerstad had 204 hits, 37 home runs and a .343 batting average.

I mailed to Kjerstad on June 5 and got the card back on June 13, for an 8-day TAT.
