Former Kent State University pitcher Eric Lauer has been enjoying things as of late, after being drafted 25th overall by the San Diego Padres in the 2016 MLB Draft.
Lauer joined the Average Sports Show to talk about the process and what it's like knowing that all of the work that he's put into his craft has paid off.
"It was just nice knowing that someone was willing to take the chance on you and let you keep going in your career," he said.
The former Golden Flash had one of the lowest ERA's in program history and he says one of the best things about his mindset is keeping it simple by getting guys out and just throwing strikes.
He says he's been working on his changeup, and perfecting his fastball for the professional level.
