Could Sam Bachman be the most recent first round pick to jump straight to the MLB?

 On Sunday night, pitcher Sam Bachman will likely be the first ever Miami RedHawk to be taken in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft. One of Bachman’s most exciting traits is his apparent MLB readiness. Draft insider Joe Doyle speculated that he could end up in an MLB bullpen later in 2021, saying “If there’s stuff that’ll play immediately out of a big league bullpen, it’s Bachman’s.” Major League teams always need bullpen help. Who better to provide it than a young player with strikeout stuff?  


Miami's baseball team now has 61 volunteer student managers.

Student baseball managers program excellent in more ways than one

The managers, led for the most part by juniors Zorian Schiffman, Rory Tekulve and Kotila, is a group of student volunteers that help with nearly every aspect of the baseball team’s operation.  Schiffman believes Miami has the largest program of student managers in the country. “[We work on] things from game planning and video scouting, to player development, to some of the more in depth research projects,” Schiffman said.
