Former Biscuits pitcher Jose Veras is on the New York Yankees' roster for the American League Division Series. He's the first former Biscuit to be on a major-league playoff roster.
Also, umpire Chuck Meriwether is working the Rockies-Phillies series. Why should we care? Because he's a graduate of Alabama's Athens State University. Former major-leaguer Gary Redus, a friend from long ago, was at Athens State at the same time and always kept up with Chuck.
