Although his Utah State teammates have caught glimpses of the scar across his chest, most don’t know why it is there. When he was 6 and living in Michigan, he caught a cold. A doctor listened to his heart and heard an unsteady patter. An ultrasound revealed a hole in Wheat’s heart, and he was rushed to Detroit Children’s Hospital, where he had emergency surgery to repair it. “It wasn’t 100 perce...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

But the scariest thing about the Murray senior pitcher isn’t his size. Or his 85-mph fastball. Or his curveball. Or his slider. Quite simply, it’s his ability to stay focused. The pressure of seeing unfamiliar faces showing up at games to clock those pitches — a clear sign he’s getting looks from scouts — has been the least of the peripheral issues he’s had to deal with. Downs’ father, John, was hospitalized for several mo...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.
