Hazelbaker was previously an infielder for the Cards, but really took off after the defensive switch. He then went on to steal more than 60 bases as a pro rookie at Low-A Greenville in 2010. The total was the most for a Boston farmhand since 1981. Check in with Hazelbaker in the video to find out more.
