Several Force players visited with patients and staff at the Via Christi Burn Unit in Wichita Monday.

The Force capped their day off by taking batting practice at the very impressive Eck Stadium home to Wichita State Baseball. Coach Basteyns, GM King, and Jon Owens did a live webcast of the "Force Report" from the field as well (you can see this on archive and see interviews with TJ Looney, Carter Loud, and Connor Little).

100 MPH FORCE CLOSER
100 MPH Force Pitcher
Kenny Giles, the 6’2”, 190 lb one-time closer for the San Diego Force, has been moved up to the MLB roster of the Phillies as a reliever. Giles, the young 23-year-old who can hit triple digits constantly, is now in the big leagues.
Giles has a blazing 100 MPH fastball that gets there quick. It’s on you in a blink of eye and ball is in the catcher's glove when the hitter is swinging.
Giles was dominant at Double-A to begin the 2014 season, sporting a 1.20 ERA in 13 games and racking up 29 strikeouts (while walking just five) in 15 innings.
He was promoted to Triple-A a month ago, where he went 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA and five saves. He struck out 9 and walked 8 in 13 2/3 innings at Lehigh
Giles played for the Force in 2011 and was draftged in the 7th round (#241 overall) of the 2011 draft
