Sun Sentinel – To ‘finish it out was really cool’: Former Calvary Christian star Jake Eder relishes closing out CWS win for Vanderbilt (July 2019)

Head coach Tim Corbin on Jake Eder: “At the beginning of last year, Jake was our consistent midweek starter. He showed maturity in his early outings and became a bullpen option for us as the season progressed. Jake is strong, has a great arm, can throw multiple pitches, is very focused and thrives on working on his craft. As he continues to improve, he should have an important role for our team. He has a chance to be a good one.”
