BRYANfuller2We want to take a moment here at to give some props to one of baseball’s more dramatic stories this year. Bryan Fuller, senior RHP, from Campbellsville University – a small NAIA college in Kentucky – pitched 21 straight scoreless innings in 26 hours to propel his Tigers to the NAIA World Series.

Athletics Tigers Baseball

For those of you who don’t know, I am first and foremost an Oakland A’s fan, though just between us friends, let’s use that term loosely. I am a secondary Los Angeles Dodgers fan.
