Jacob's Ladder; Stallings' persistence pays off for Pirates

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) The son's stay in town has outlasted the father's. The irony isn't lost on Jacob Stallings.

It wasn't necessarily supposed to be this way. Stallings was still a catching prospect - and not necessarily a young one - in the Pirates' organization four years ago when his dad Kevin left a successful run as the men's basketball coach at Vanderbilt to take on the same job at the University of Pittsburgh.

The marriage between the elder Stallings and the Panthers lasted all of two nightmarish seasons. By the spring of 2018, Pitt moved on. It seemed the younger Stallings might meet the same fate. Pittsburgh designated for him assignment several times as he pogoed between the minors and the majors after making his debut in 2016. The odds of him ever sticking in Pittsburgh seeming to grow more and more remote as his mid-20s turned into his late-20s.
