Buffs pitcher Braden Baker honed his game at Canyon High School and Cisco College before landing as a sports and exercise science major at West Texas A&M.
Next stop was Cisco College in College Heights, Texas, where Baker studied under coach David White. The team played in the regional championship that year (2016).
After a medical redshirt his first season with the Buffs, Baker’s junior year (2018) placed him in 23 games, “finishing the season with a 6-2 overall record with six saves to tie for the team lead,” as his bio states. He also was designated Honorable Mention in the All-Lone Star Conference. For 2019, the right-handed pitcher and infielder has contributed to the team’s 7-4 record this year.
