Waring (b. 1986) is actually from Columbia, SC. My brother lives there now. Maybe he and Waring can meet up for a beer. Waring was a 7th round pick in the 2007 June Amateur Draft out of (you guessed it) Wofford College, in Spartanburg, SC. He played in the minors from 2007 to 2014 in the Reds, Orioles and Twins systems, reaching as high as AAA. He had 807 hits, 172 home runs and a .250 batting average.
On December 9, 2008, the Reds traded Waring, Ryan Freel and Justin Turner to the Orioles in exchange for Ramon Hernandez. Kind of interesting that Turned ended up becoming a pretty big star. Freel's story is really sad and is something to be discussed another day.
I mailed to Waring on September 22 and got the cards back on December 17, for an 86-day TAT.
