DURHAM (WTVD) --Two years after leaving NC State, Trea Turner returned to the Triangle, at a ballpark seen from a new perspective.
For a guy who travels lightning quick around the bases, Turner's climb to the Majors feels glacial. Stymied by a power-hitting Washington Nationals shortstop, Turner is leaning to play center field, which would increase his chances of a call-up.
In June, Turner played one game with Washington, going 3-3 with a double and a walk. He was promptly sent back down.
Turner follows the Pack 9 closely and reached out to Coach Elliott Avent after he was bitten by a venomous snake.
Being back here is fun. But Turner hopes it's the last time. Watch the video for more.
