"He played right field and I played center," Cain said. "He was a good player."
Cain is from the Tallahassee area, but Saunders is from Victoria, British Columbia. How did the Canadian end up playing for a Florida community college? Turns out, Saunders was on the Canadian junior national team that trained at Disney World's stadium -- and a lot of Florida coaches got a look at him. So he was recruited by Tallahassee CC.
"It was a blast. A lot of fun. It was my first experience in the U.S. playing college sports," Saunders said.
Cain has great respect for his former teammate.
"He's 6-5, he can run, he can hit, he can throw, he can do it all," Cain said.
Ditto for Saunders.
"Lorenzo has quite a story," Saunders said. "I don't think he picked up a baseball until he was like 16 years old. He's just an amazing athlete and makes the game look easy. It was a pleasure to play alongside him."
Now, seven years later, they find themselves on the same Major League field.
"It's a small world," Cain said.
