There are about 1,200 players selected in the MLB draft each year -- What happens if you're one of the players chosen near the bottom? What sort of chance are you going to get? Find out in Season 2 of Razed Sports, as we share the story of Cole Uvila, a most tenacious player with a most unusual backstory.
In Episode 1, hear the tale of how Cole became a pitcher, how he didn't take pitching seriously until college, how his quest was temporarily derailed by injury and how he fought to heal and get back on track. And follow along as he sweats out the draft, an agonizingly long process in itself that throws some surprises in his path.
This episode sets the stage for the rest of Season 2, in which we'll document Cole's first season as a professional baseball player and follow along as he tries to climb the minor league ladder, against all odds, as a 40th round draft pick.
