SALEM, Ore.– Brody McMullen will be taking his talents to the next level following this season with the West Salem Baseball team.
Sunday afternoon at Capital City Sports, McMullen signed his Letter of Intent to play baseball at NWAC South Region powerhouse Linn-Benton Community College. Going into at the moment as a pitcher for the Roadrunners who went 30-9 this past Spring.
“I’m super excited, super excited for it. The program seems really fun and I like the coaches and the players that are already there, so I feel like it’s going to be a good time,” McMullen said.
McMullen’s older brother Brock also plays in the NWAC, catching for Edmonds College in Washington that plays in the NWAC North division. A few of the older McMullen’s teammates from Sprague and that the younger McMullen knows through the years in Michael Soper, Broderick Stanaway and Jack Muth are at the LBCC, so it’ll be a little bit of a reunion as the Salem-ties to the Albany school continues to grow with the Titan going south.
“I know Chase (Reynolds of West Albany), I know Jack, I know Broderick and I know they’re all going to push me to be where I want to be and where I need to be. So, I’m excited to have those guys around me while I’m trying to get better,” McMullen said. “Just work hard really. I’m going to try to put everything I can into baseball and be the best that I can be so I can get to that four-year school and get to my goals of where I want to be.”
For McMullen, the senior pitcher and outfielder still has his senior year of baseball with the Titans as West Salem opens the season March 29 when they travel to play Roseburg to start the 2021-22 season as he got his next chapter of his playing career figured out going into this next season.
