RM Starts Pro Baseball Career in Minors Next Week

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA -- Three years after returning from an LDS mission to the Philippines, Doug Dent has received a new call, and heads to Mobile, Alabama Saturday. Dent will throw his 90 mph fastball for the Mobile BayBears, a double-A team in the San Diego Padres organization.

The call came just a few months after Dent married University of Utah All-American sprinter Amy Tidwell, who corresponded with him while he was on his mission. Most recently, Dent, a two-sport star at San Juan High School, has been an assistant coach for Placer High School, where his brother-in-law, Mark Lee, is the basketball coach.

The Sacramento Bee reports that Dent still believes his mission was good for him, even though it has taken a while to get back into baseball form. "The Philippines was a great experience, a real life experience. Even if people weren't interested in what I had to say, they always invited you in for something to eat. Amazing people. I didn't pick up a baseball for two years. I missed it, but the time off was good for me."
