Academics - Brown is undecided on a major.
Personal - Tyler David Brown... Born 10/2/98 in Mansfield, Ohio... Son of the late Cindy Brown... Favorites include: Nolan Ryan (player), Wrestling (other sport), Never Back Down (movie), Sons of Anarchy (tv show), Nicolas Cage (actor), Pizza (meal), Country/ Hank Williams, Jr. (music/singer/band), and Peanut Butter (late night snack)... says if he wasn't playing baseball he would be a farmer... names Seth Rogan as the actor to play him in a movie... uses Determined as one word to describe himself... roommates with Pat DeMarco... lists the last game he played in front of his mom as his most memorable athletic moment... Chose Vanderbilt "because it's a family feeling you get here and it will make me a better person."
