Hunter Dozier teleconference notes

First-round selection Hunter Dozier is “super excited” to have been drafted by the Royals.  A shortstop at Stephen F. Austin University, Dozier says he will play wherever the Royals need him.  He visited Kauffman Stadium recently, describes it as gorgeous and says that he hit a few over the wall in batting practice, but knows that he will have to get stronger to play here every day.  Dozier said that a high school football injury kept some bigger baseball schools away.  He chose Stephen F. Austin as he felt comfortable with the coaching staff.  When asked why he majored in kinesiology, Dozier said that he has always been interested in the subject.  If he were not a baseball player, he would love to be a Major League strength and conditioning coach.
