Austin Peay to induct baseball’s Rowdy Hardy into APSU Hall of Fame

 

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Sports - APSU - Governors - Lady GovsClarksville, TN – Austin Peay was fortunate things didn’t work out for Rowdy Hardy at his first college baseball stop

After one redshirt year at Ole Miss, Hardy elected to transfer to Jackson State Community College, where he pitched for former Gov Steve Cornelison and led the conference in innings pitched.

At that point, Austin Peay set its sights on the durable hurler— then-APSU head coach Gary McClure always had a penchant for lefties. But not even McClure could not have envisioned what the 6-2 slender slinger was going to accomplish during the next three seasons and in the process earn the distinction of becoming a member of APSU’s Athletics Hall of Fame.
