Kevin Hooper on Nick: ‘Walt’ put up unbelievable numbers for us last year, and I can’t describe how valuable he was to our team.  He wanted the ball every night, and more often than not, we were able to give it to him.  He is as tough as they come against left-handed bats, and he has the ability to step into any situation and get us big outs.
