Jordan Alves has taken Horace Greeley's advice to a new level.
The young man has gone west. Like 2,360 miles, give or take a few singles, west for his first job as a head baseball coach.
The Anderson County High School graduate is coaching with the Portland Baseball Club organization. As in Portland, Oregon, the town Alves was probably more familiar with as the hometown of former Kentucky basketball player Terrence Jones than a place that would give him his first chance at running the show on the diamond.
