Graduated Tribe pitcher Brandon Johnson knew he did not want his baseball career to end when the Indians finished the 2016 campaign this past Spring. One thing he did not mind ending, however, was the dreaded Midwestern baseball winter workout program, which consists of trudging through snow, ice, and freezing rain only to throw pitches and train indoors. So Johnson is headed to the warmer climate of Florida, where he will pitch for Webber International University, which competes in the NAIA’s Sun Conference.
“I knew this was what I needed to do. I’m excited to be headed to a new and different place after high school”, said Johnson. Coach Adrian Heim stated that this invitation to play was a great testament of Brandon’s hard work and great parents. “He’s a great kid and he will work very hard down there for Webber head coach Brad Niethammer,” Heim remarked.
Johnson plans to major in Sports Business Management. He said he will miss Anderson and the great tradition of the Anderson Indians, but will never remain too far away.
