LUKE BARKER

SAN ANTONIO MISSIONS (MILWAUKEE BREWERS AAA AFFILIATE)

Luke Barker was undrafted coming out of DII Chico State and it looked like his dream of playing professional baseball was over. However he decided to give it one more chance and threw in a couple of games in the California Winter League where he caught the Traverse City Beach Bums. After an excellent season there his contract was sold to the Milwaukee Brewers. In each minor league season his numbers have gotten better and better and now he is one step away from pitching in the Major Leagues.

Episode 03

FREMONT MOO

FREMONT MOO OWNER CHAD MILLER AND PIERRE TRAPPERS INTERNS RICHARD COSGROVE AND BRYCE WHEARY

In this episode Nick chats with Chad Miller, the owner of the new Expedition League expansion team, the Fremont Moo. Miller is also the head baseball coach of the NAIA’s Fremont based Midland Warriors. As a long time advocate of college summer league baseball, Miller had only initially hoped to help bring a team to town, not to run it, but when someone was needed to step up to the plate he seized the opportunity.

While at the game Nick also met with a pair of interns from another Expedition League team, the Pierre Trappers. Richard Cosgrove and Bryce Wheary, who play DIII baseball at the University of Valley Forge, tenaciously obtained their summer positions and have been using technology to help the Trappers team develop their game.

Episode 01 – Landon Powell http://www.123inning.com/2019/08/21/episode-01/ http://www.123inning.com/2019/08/21/episode-01/#respond Wed, 21 Aug 2019 04:33:12 +0000 http://www.123inning.com/?p=24661

Episode 01

LANDON POWELL

The inaugural inagural interview of 123 Inning College Baseball Podcast is with North Greenville head coach, Landon Powell. Powell has turned about the one time cupcake Crusader club into one of DII’s top teams as they’ve won over 90 games over the past two seasons and spent much of 2019 as the top ranked team.

Prior to being a coach Powell was a standout college player himself, recieving All American status at South Carolina as helped the Gamecocks reach Omaha and the College World Series three times. He was drafted in the first round by Oakland and spent three seasons in the MLB with the Athletics.

However what makes him such an interesting and enlightening interview goes well beyond anything he has accomplished in the dugout or on the diamond. His once promising professional career was derailed as he battled chronic injury and a liver disease. As he was attempting a comeback in the New York Mets organization, his five month old daughter Izzy died from a rare autoimmune disease. Despite the setbacks his character and faith have persevered and he has transformed the obstacles and setbacks he has faced into a driving force which makes him a highly respected coach and mentor to the next generation of ballplayers.
