2003 PRESSBOX

6/4: 1385th Overall, Round 47 - Cleveland "COMMENT: Large, heavy boned. Athletic frame. Strong, well-defined arms. Similar to Troy Glaus. Strong, powerful bat through zone, easy plus power potential. Alert fielder. Fair jump and quickness for size. Excellent make-up, team player. Bundle of raw talent itching to break out."
2/30: Santa Fe Christian Athlete starring for SDSU "I sat and I prayed about it with my parents and my pastor,” Corona said. “What it came down to was putting Jesus in front of what I wanted to do. (Through prayer) I realized that Jesus had always been good to me, so why change now?”

7/20:
Panners sweep Miners Richard Larson "The Alaska Goldpanners looked like a fine-tuned machine Friday at Growden Memorial Park, completing a four-game sweep of the Mat-Su Miners with a 4-1 victory.  Chad Corona reached far over the fence to snare the ball, tumbling headfirst over the fence. Corona grabbed the chainlink with his bare hand and flipped himself over, keeping a hold of the ball as he landed on his feet after falling 6 feet to the cement floor of the dugout.  "
6/14:
Goldpanners return to town for home opener - Richard Larson "I think it will be a fun time this summer," Corona said. "It's a bit of a climate change for me. I usually spend most of my time surfing. I had a brother up here two years ago and he did some fishing and told me it was really good up here. I haven't fished in about six years, but I'm looking forward to it."
