Hi, my name is Wes Hodges and I play in the Indians organization. I was raised in Ooltewah, Tennessee and I have lived there my whole life. It is a small, quaint place in the mountains with lakes. This is my first time to Arizona and it is totally different than what I am used to. There are no trees, no grass, but it’s nice when it’s not 95 degrees! I played in Akron this year and it was good. I had a solid season and stayed healthy all year. While I am playing here in the Fall League I am staying with my good friend, Trevor Crowe, at his place in Tempe. He played here in 2006 and 2007. I enjoy watching football on my day off and I’m big into fantasy football. In fact, my team is 5-0. So far the highlight of my time here was going to a Cardinals game. I got to see the Cardinals/Bills game. I want to go to the Grand Canyon if I have the time. I know a lot of the guys here; I’ve played with them at some level either during the regular season, college, or Team USA. We play our home games in Surprise and it’s a really nice facility. I’m working hard to keep improving and I am glad to be here.
