CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- With one quick search, you can find a couple different YouTube videos starring West Virginia Power first baseman Matt Curry.
One is a commercial for a WatchESPN app that has a cowboy flipping open his smart phone just in time for Curry, then a college star at TCU, to swing and miss on a pitch.
Another video has less polish - it's shaky home footage taken of a television set broadcasting last year's College World Series - but means a little more to Curry.
"It gives me chills every time I watch it," he said.
On a 3-2 pitch with the sacks full, and Curry's Horned Frogs down 7-5 to Florida State with a spot in the national semifinals on the line, Curry pinged a pitch high in the air to straightaway center field for a go-ahead grand slam.
The sea of purple at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Neb., erupted, as did the at-home cameraman who seemed to have an inkling that Curry was going to be clutch.
It was the 47th grand slam in CWS history.
That was June 27, and after getting drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 10th round last summer, Curry hasn't stopped hitting.
Entering tonight's Appalachian Power Park series opener against Kannapolis at 7, the left-handed Curry leads Power regulars in batting average, runs, hits, triples, home runs, RBI, slugging percentage and OPS.
That last stat stands for on-base plus slugging, and these days baseball nerds commonly cite that all-encompassing number over home runs and batting average as a better player performance indicator.
Curry's 1.150 OPS is second in the South Atlantic League, behind only mega-prospect Bryce Harper of the Hagerstown Suns.
"I've locked in on quality at-bats," Curry said.
West Virginia Manager Gary Robinson has been with Curry every step of his professional career.
They were together last year at short-season State College, and each moved one rung up the organizational ladder this season.
"There's a sense of urgency when he plays," Robinson said. "He's very in tune with detail, does what he's told in the batting cage, works hard with the hitting coach."
