Vanderbilt's baseball team is having a special season with an overall record (as of May 7) of 41-6 and 21-2 in the Southeastern Conference, the best start ever by an SEC club.
The team has already clinched the Eastern Division championship and is 3 games up in the loss column over LSU (with six games to play) win the regular season crown.
Then comes the SEC Tournament followed by the NCAA Regionals, Super Regionals and, hopefully another trip to Omaha for a berth in the College World Series and a shot at a national title.
One of the keys to Vanderbilt's success has been the players recruited from the Boston and New England areas. That includes such players as Mike Yaztremski and Tyler Beede among others.
There's another special youngster who is about to become a part of the team next season and, according to this EPN article, he's already an inspiration to many, even the victims of the recent Boston Bombing Terror Attack.
This is a must-read article even if you aren't a baseball fan.....
Welcome to Vanderbilt, Josh!
