Down on the Farm: Head is a hit in Salem

Miles Head had an eventful first game with the Single A Salem Red Sox. Soon after being called up from Greenville, he played in his first game for Salem and went 1-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

"It's the same game when you get down to it," Head said.

After the game, during an interview, Head got a celebratory shaving cream pie in the face from one of his teammates. He shrugged his shoulders.

"That's what you get for being the young guy," he said with a laugh.
