By wlchrist Miles Mikolas Former Nova Southeastern University baseball standout, Miles Mikolas, has taken his talents overseas after spending the last three years with the San Diego Padres and Texas Rangers. Mikolas joins a storied ball club, the Yomiuri Giants, referred to as the “New York Yankees of Japan.” NSUSharks.com caught up with Mikolas at the beginning of his journey, asking him a few questions on what he expects and how the opportunity came about.
