So does this delivery look familiar to you? How about the pop of that glove? Do you feel familiar Well, at least for the people in this field, it should be. Blair Frederick, who played for both Brother Martin and Ls U. Now he’s back at 23, trying to revive the Xavier baseball program. I find that fun. I wake up and buckle up the cleats. One thing I’ve said is when it’s not fun. Then I stopped putting them on. You know, to this day I still love to wake up. I love my days every day. And I wouldn’t trade that for the world. While Frederick enjoyed it, it was certainly a very long journey for ex-brother Martin. Great. He went from Ls U to a Junior College Toe where he had a 9 to 5 job and even graduated you know, but when he got back on the line he had to first heal his injured shoulder from his Lsu days. I didn’t get it treated and tried to play it through in junior college. Hillary trains too well. Came home to find out I had injured the rotator cuff and labrum. Hell, the rotator cuff took about nine months at the end of my shoulder. Rehab towards my UC I have Tommy. It took John a year to recover from this. And now he’s here. But the question after all these years, why? Why come back after all these injuries? To be honest, I started coaching a 12-year-old team. I saw them having fun every day and only I helped them. It kind of brought back the joy that baseball was that I lost those 1st 2nd s. I could see that firsthand. Um, you know, and then I started getting into it, even Mawr Joy, because I knew this part of his journey had a very special meeting. My mother was an employee at Xavier for about 15 years. So I go there every day after school, uh, and take down his Avis campus to come full circle, you know, my life started with Xavier. Um, when it comes to the passive life. And you know, now I’m back here revising the program. I’m looking forward to the fact that the team is very excited to have Frederick even though he’s something of the old guy on the roster. It’s kind of weird to be on a team where everyone is older than my younger brother. So, um, you already know what age they are a bit. He is extremely mature. Um, he’s in charge. Uh, he’s very intelligent. All of these things and more. Xavier coach Adrian Holloway calls Frederick his top player, not Lee Will Frederick. The pitch also plays the left and right fields. Besides, he’ll hit. It is very rare to find a two-way man who can do both. Well, he does both very well. I like to run around in the outfield. I like to swing the bat. And of course I love pitching. So just go out there, have fun with it, you know, I’m just saying what I could do. Sharifi Shock Wds you news? Yes,

After his outstanding high school career with Brother Martin, Frederick played for LSU in the 2017 season.

He appeared out of the bullpen in five games, worked 2.2 innings, and posted a 12/10 ERA with five walks and three spikes.

A shoulder injury limited his action as a Tiger and only allowed him to play for one season for LSU.

He tried playing through the shoulder injury in junior college and it didn’t work that well.

Upon returning home, Frederick found that he had an injured rotator cuff and an injured labrum.

He eventually healed the rotator cuff, but at the end of his shoulder rehabilitation he tore his UCL and had Tommy John operate on him.

Now at the age of 23, Frederick is healthy and ready to play for a program that brings baseball back for the first time since 1960.

“I enjoy this. I wake up and buckle the cleats on. One thing I said, if it’s not fun, I stop putting them on,” said Frederick.

There is also something special for Frederick, who plays for Xavier.

“My mom was an employee of Xavier for about 15 years, so I went there every day after school and hung out on Xavier’s campus. The circle comes full circle. I started my life with Xavier and now I’m back here trying to revise the program, “said Frederick.

Frederick is entitled to Xavier for two years.

He will play for the gold rush as well as in the outfield.
