Shorewood baseball standout Blake Snell's career got a boost from his father's tough talk over dinner at Spiro's, according to this article from the Tampa Bay Times.
Blake Snell had been back to his Seattle area home for a week or two, feeling pretty good about himself after a 2014 season in which he finally reached advanced Class A during his fourth pro season and was named the Rays' top minor-league pitcher.
He headed out with his dad and older brother, Dru, to grab some food at Spiro's Pizza and Pasta, one of their favorite local spots in Shoreline.
But there was more than just dinner served that night.
