J.B. Shuck a 2006 graduate of Galion High School and a former Ohio State Buckeye appears to have found a home in the majors with the Los Angeles Angels.  This past Tuesday Shuck went 3 for 5 with four RBI's in the Angels win over Detroit.  On Thursday, he helped LA again making a diving catch off the bat of Detroit's Miguel Cabrera in left, then in the top of the 10th came around to score the go ahead run in the Angels 3-1 over the Tigers in Detroit. 

In 54 games this season, Shuck is hitting .303 with ten doubles, one triple and 19 RBI's in 152 at bats with 46 hits total.  Shuck was signed by the LAA to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training and had made the roster when the Angels broke camp to start the regular season in April.
