Austin Peay State University Baseball’s Tyler Rogers One of the Best Closers in the Game

 

Austin Peay State University Governors SportsClarksville, TN – The first thing you’re likely to notice about Tyler Rogers is his throwing motion. The Govs closer comes set, then dips and fires, submarine-style, to the plate.

The lanky righty combines his style – to a right-handed batter, it looks as though the ball leaves Rogers’ hand behind the batters’ back – with low-90s heat and a slider that borders on unhittable some days. It’s small wonder that he’s developed into one of the all-time greatest closers in OVC history.

Written by Colby Wilson

APSU Sports Information

Austin Peay State University Governors SportsClarksville, TN – Lee Ridenhour took a different road to Austin Peay than many that have donned the red-and-white.

The fireballing right-hander stormed out of Shawnee Mission West (Kansas) High School and into a No. 3 starter role for Kansas as a freshman in 2009. He beat then-No. 21 Arkansas in his collegiate debut, dueled No. 1 Texas to a stand-still (six and two-thirds, two runs allowed in a no-decision) and defeated No. 9 Kansas State for his sixth win, the most for a Jayhawk frosh in 15 seasons.
