WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – On Friday night Logan Sowers joined an elite group of student athletes when he was named Mr. Baseball. He’s the second McCutcheon Maverick to be given the award and he joined us in studio Sunday night.

It’s been a whirlwind couple months for Sowers. He graduated high school, was selected in the 31st round of the MLB draft by the San Diego Padres, turned down the money, and stuck with his original plan to head to Bloomington to play baseball for the Hoosiers.

Sowers gets the nod as the top senior player in Indiana, joining Clayton Richard as the only other Maverick to win the honor. Richard was Indiana Mr. Baseball in 2003.
