Jake Rodriguez: Gone & Back Again

Jake Rodriguez was a standout catcher for the Beaver Baseball team from 2011 through the College World Series run in 2013. He dealt with the loss of his father in 2012 (we talk extensively about how he handled that) before being drafted in 2013 by the Houston Astros. He elected to forego his senior year, which he now calls the worst mistake of his life. The good thing is, he gets to teach younger players what he learned in that process, which he's been doing ever since joining OSU's baseball staff in 2015. Rodriguez currently serves as the Director of Operations.
