The Tennessean — How a Vanderbilt baseball player who nearly bled to death is among NCAA’s top hitters

Head coach Tim Corbin on Keegan: “Dom was starting to blossom offensively at the beginning of last year. He brings a very strong presence to the ballpark everyday with his seriousness, attitude and investment level. He is a team guy and he only wants to accomplish one thing…positive team results. His steadiness and consistency are realized academically as well. Besides being a strong offensive piece, Dom’s defensive value stretches behind the plate and at first base…he is a very good thrower. He is a very grounded and humble young man.”
