RHP Cason Sherrod (7) has a fastball into the mid-90s and changes
things up on batters by varying his arm slot.

also

from Texas A & M web site:
-RHP Cason Sherrod, 7th round (Miami Marlins): Sherrod, a long reliever,
surprised quite a few people a year ago when he decided to return to

One of three Trojans to start in all 56 games of the season; started every

with 452 putouts and fourth with 16 runners caught stealing … Had the
most chances of any player on the team (497), yet still had the third-best
fielding percentage with a .990 (only five errors all season) … Had
three-hit performances in three consecutive games (Alabama State, ULM x2)
with a home run, double, four RBIs and four runs scored over the stretch
… Drove in a career-high three runs in the series opener at New Orleans

streak … Overall, batted .254 at the plate with four homers, 10 doubles
and 24 RBIs

2016 (Freshman)
Played in 57 games and started 54; 40 as the catcher, 13 at third base and
one at shortstop … Picked up six doubles, one triple, one home run and
drew a team-high 27 walks … Only struck out 19 times, which is one
strikeout every 10.1 at-bats … Recorded 12 multi-hit games and eight
multi-RBI games … Led the team with 18 two-out RBIs … Had three hits
and three RBIs in the opening series against Northern Kentucky … Went
7-for-11 with two RBIs and one run scored against Southeastern Louisiana

random deafsports thoughts

The Deaflympics and the Deaf World Championship events
do not allow participants to wear either hearing aids
or cochlear implants during competition.

Reason is that hearing aid and CI athletes get
unfair advantage if they could hear teammates’
shouts and listen to the sounds of the ball, etc.

Participants, coaches and team officials all know
about that rule and 99.9 percent of them follow it.

Yet, there are always that tiny minority that try
to get away with it.

DeafDigest Sports editor, covering the 1993
Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgara, personally saw
a volleyball official eject a Russian woman
for hiding her heairng aid inside her hair.

The Russian woman erupted, saying “no one
told me about it”
