Stuper Says: "Charlie is a very versatile player who can play virtually anywhere. Because he plays soccer in the fall, I am not quite sure where he will settle in for us. He can catch, as well as play the corners in the infield and the outfield. His versatility extends to the plate because he is a switch hitter. He is a good guy to have on your team."
