Playing second a first for top pick Dustin Ackley

No one ever had to ask Dustin Ackley twice to taking batting practice. “I’ve always loved hitting,” said the Seattle Mariners first-round draft pick from last June. “Now, I love taking ground balls, too.” At 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Ackley has always been a batting cage rat, and at 22 he has played almost everywhere on a diamond with the exception of one position – second base, the very position the Mariners are asking him to play.
