Coach Corbin Quote: Sandy spent last year rehabbing his shoulder and made big gains with his overall body strength. He is a very driven young man. Whether it’s baseball or academics, he has a high level of excellence. He is a favorite amongst his teammates, and is someone that is very enjoyable to be around. He will compete for a relief role this year and we look forward to seeing him compete for us.
