Scott, who has developed what many consider the best change-up in college baseball, is projected to go in the first three rounds of the upcoming Major League Draft. Though 5-foot-10, considerably shorter than most scouts prefer their mound prospects, his consistent excellence — he proudly points out that he has not missed a weekend start as a collegian and he has also made spot relief appearances beyond that, to help his team — has helped him overcome such a stigma.
Gorgen is scheduled to start today at 5:05 p.m. when the No. 14-ranked Anteaters (38-16) meet Oral Roberts (46-12) in the opening round of the four-team, double-elimination Lincoln Regional at the University of Nebraska’s Hawks Field at Haymaker Park.
While he clearly has work to do to try to help his team return to Omaha, where the ’Eaters finished third last season to put the program on the map, Gorgen has had time to reflect on his storybook career.
