Instant Peay Play: Former APSU Baseball Gov Tyler Rogers makes history in call up to the big leagues

 

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – When Tyler Rogers got the call he had been waiting for from the San Francisco Giants letting him know that he was finally going to get his shot to pitch in the major leagues, a little over a week ago after almost seven seasons tolling around in the minor leagues, the former Austin Peay State University (APSU) baseball player also became a part of Major League history.

In making it to the Giants major league roster, Tyler joins his twin brother Taylor (pitcher for the Minnesota Twins) as only the 10th pair of twin brothers in history to both play in the Major Leagues and only the eighth overall to do so in the same year.
