Little bit late on the intro but I do feel it is necessary. First off I’m Cody, I’m a senior right handed pitcher for the Florida Tech Panthers, a DII school located down in beautiful Melbourne Florida. I’ve done what some may call the “tour of Florida” in terms of my collegiate baseball endeavors. It all started down at Florida Gulf Coast University as a walk-on where I did not compete and ended up being released after the fall semester. I finished up my first year of school at FGCU and moved on to a junior college in Ocala the following fall semester. I played under Marty Smith’s hegemony for 2 years and had a solid sophomore year which allowed me to keep livin’ the dream over here at Florida Tech. I have been fortunate enough to play with outstanding teammates and coaches throughout my college baseball career and it is unbelievable how fast time goes by. My senior season is almost underway and if you’ve ever played a collegiate baseball schedule you would most certainly agree that in a blink of an eye you’re in your final week of conference play. It is quite scary to think that this year could be my last in the competitive realm of baseball, but I wouldn’t trade my experiences for a thing.
Outside of baseball I enjoy just about anything outdoors. My favorite movie is Forrest Gump, and I enjoy music… all of it. I’m a forensic psychology major, and after someone tells me I can’t play this game anymore I’d like to pursue an occupation somewhere in federal law enforcement.
All in all, I’m very excited to bring ya’ll a unique perspective in college baseball, and even more excited for the first pitch come February.
