My interview with Tulsa third baseman Darin Holcomb

Every day that Darin Holcomb can step on the field and take his position at third base for the Tulsa Drillers is a good day for the native of Spokane, Wash.

Holcomb missed all of last season suffering from spondylolisthesis, a condition where the L5 vertebrae in his lower back has slipped forward and is causing damage to L4 as well.

Holcomb, who was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 12th round of the 2007 First-Year Player Draft, entered Saturday night's action hitting .257 with four homers and 22 RBIs. I recently had the chance to sit down with Holcomb and talk about his back, the rough emotional season of 2010, and his hopes and goals for the future.
