A late bloomer, Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain making up for lost time

The routes to the big leagues are endless. When James Shields was a sophomore in high school, he played in the prestigious Area Code Games showcase. Eric Hosmer had already received recruiting letters from Tennessee and Miami. At that point in his life, Lorenzo Cain’s baseball resume featured swatting at tennis balls in backyard games with his cousins, and little else. “No Little League,” the Royals outfielder said. “Nothing. None of that.”
