The Baylor Baseball team has sustained a few injuries early in the season as Shea Langeliers is working back from a Hamate bone, break and now Shea Langeliers is done for the season with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome.
The Bears were upset to hear the news, but now know there is still a full season to be played and they have to pick up and keep going.
“I have nothing but love for Cody, our heart goes out to Cody, and it hurts for us, but from a baseball standpoint, we’ve rallied around him and Coach Rod told us yesterday, ‘I mean what an awesome thing to get behind,'” Senior Richard Cunningham said. “You lose the defending Big 12 Pitcher of the year and that’s a big bummer, but let’s prove ourselves without — potentially — one of our biggest dudes.”
Head Coach Steve Rodriguez knows his team got hit with a big dose of adversity and he is looking forward to seeing how they respond.
“As miserbale as it is for all of us to have to deal with Cody and how horrible it is for Cody — This year especially being a draft year and all the things that go along with it,” he said. “I think any time you have adversity hit your team you get to see what the make-up is all about.”
Baylor will get a chance to show how well they can respond when they open a three game series with Nebraska on Friday at Baylor Ballpark.
