Mayor Sarno had a special visitor to his home yesterday evening- his neighbor, recent Central High School graduate, and Milwaukee Brewers organization shortstop Isan Diaz. Isan visited with the Sarnos and brought over his own autographed baseball cards, and a signed baseball.
Currently a part of the Milwaukee Brewers organization, Isan played for the Missoula Osprey (Arizona Diamondbacks farm team) last year. He was named the Diamondbacks' Minor League Player of the Month for July 2015, and Most Valuable Player of the Pioneer League at the end of the season.
Mayor Sarno is happy to see the youth of Springfield shining so brightly and on behalf of the City of Springfield, wishes this young man continued success on his way to the major leagues.
