Instant Peay Play: Former APSU Baseball Gov seeing career resurgence in return to West Coast

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – For the better part of nine seasons former Austin Peay State University (APSU) Athletics Hall of Fame member A.J. Ellis was a key cog behind the plate for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but a trade to the Philadelphia Phillies in 2016 followed by a season with the Miami Marlins seemed to signal that the end of his career could be right around the corner.

But the former four-time All-Ohio Valley Conference First-Team member has seen a resurrection to his career with a return to the west coast in 2018 as a member of the San Diego Padres.
