Former Smithfield-Selma star Sands a key part of Durham Bulls’ 2014 plans

No matter how Jerry Sands plays for the Durham Bulls this season, it’s going to be a very big year for him and his family. The seventh-year pro out of Smithfield-Selma High and Catawba College drew a hefty media contingent during the club’s annual pre-season press availability on Wednesday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. And he had come to the yard from some more important duties. “I had to put a crib together this morning,” said Sands, explaining that his wife, Morgan, is 22 weeks pregnant.
