Drew Hayes - 33
Coach Corbin Quote: We are lucky to have Drew back for his senior year after he had the chance to sign professionally in the summer. He adds experience and talent to our staff. He has a very good arm to go along with his off-speed stuff. His versatility is really important to our staff as he can pitch as a starter, reliever or closer and he will be counted on heavily.
