Brent,19, is definitely looking forward to getting on the field during the summer of 2017 for the Miners after having to sit out his freshman year of collegiate baseball this spring due to a rules technicality occurring in conjunction with his transfer from his original college freshman destination of Mount Vernon (OH) Nazarene University to his current school of Wallace Community College, which is located in Dothan, AL.
The right-hand hitting catcher concluded a stellar high school career in the spring of 2016 at Westerville (OH) North High School. He was a four-year baseball letterman there with lofty batting averages of .369, .411, and .398 respectively for his final three years of high school. He also was named first team All-Conference in his junior and senior years of high school.
The 5-11, 175-pounder had a memorable summer in 2016 after high school graduation when he became a bullpen catcher for the Columbus (OH) Clippers, the International League AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians.
Even though he is unable to see game action this spring for Wallace Community College, Todys still is able to practice with the team under the watchful eye of head coach Mackey Sasser, a former major league catcher who appeared in 534 career MLB games over nine seasons that stretched from 1987-1995 and was a .267 career hitter.
