Coach Corbin Quote: Chandler has matured in every facet of his Vanderbilt life. He has taken it upon himself to be very intentional with his daily investment habits. Because of this, he has taken his physical strength to another level, his pitching development has grown and his mental skills on the field and in the classroom have blossomed. He will add on to the experience he received as a freshman and really help our club this year in a key role.
