Herb Singleton

Texas notes: Singleton in good position

Jonathan Singleton has played baseball since he was 8 years old, and it didn't take long for him to chose the game over his father's sport of football.

Never mind that Herb Singleton was once quarterback for the University of Oregon. Jonathan, Corpus Christi's first baseman and the Houston Astros' No. 1 prospect, had his heart set on baseball -- though it wasn't like he was turning his back on a family business or ignoring his father's wishes.

"Actually my dad wanted me to play baseball, so it went pretty smoothly," said Singleton. "You last longer, and he thinks it's a much more complex game."

In his fourth pro season, the 20-year-old Singleton is preparing for what looks like an eventuality -- the day he suits up with Houston.

"It's a good organization -- good things happen, so I'm definitely excited about it," he said.

Singleton has been with the Astros since midseason last year, when he came over in a trade from the Phillies.
