Trey Wimmer

This past Saturday, Liberty senior catcher Trey Wimmer was selected by the Chicago White Sox in the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft. 

Wimmer, a two-time Liberty team captain, had his best year during his last season in a Flames' uniform in 2013.  The catcher hit .296 and led the Flames in both RBIs (44) and runs scored (43). He collected 17 doubles, three triples and five home runs during the year, posting a team-leading 110 total bases. Defensively, he threw out 25 of 49 (51%) base runners trying to steal during the year.

The Greenwood, S.C. native was named to the Johnny Bench Award Watch list, recognizing the nation's top catchers. In addition, he was selected to the NCAA Columbus, S.C. All-Regional team, earned Big South All-Conference first team honors and was voted to the Big South All-Tournament team.

The Flames Sports Network's Nick Pierce caught up with the catcher and talked with him about his future plans and his time at Liberty.
