Pitching Through Adversity with Kyle Wollman
My guest today is Kyle Wollman. Kyle played baseball at Xavier High School and graduated in 2015. He went on to play baseball at Endicott College where he pitched for the Gulls the past five seasons. The journey wasn't smooth sailing though as Kyle suffered numerous arm injuries throughout his career. In the fall of his senior year at Xavier, he partially tore his UCL which would be the beginning of his arm issues. He would ultimately get Tommy John surgery at Endicott his freshman year which would force him to be sidelined for his first two seasons. This didn't stop Kyle from overcoming these obstacles and turning into a dominant starting pitcher for Endicott in his final seasons with the team. In the episode, we talk about Kyle's baseball beginnings in Berlin Little League, his career at Xavier, college baseball, and how he overcame the obstacles that were thrown his way. It was a real pleasure to get to hear Kyle's story.
