Head coach Tim Corbin on Velazquez: “Ray is a great story in many ways. We got to know him in our fall camp several years ago and since that time, he has done everything in his power to get to Vanderbilt. His growth academically and his maturity have blossomed over the short time. Ray has the ability to play several positions in the infield while being a strong hitter. He has strong hands and has the ability to hit the ball to both sides of the field. I am proud of his growth.”
