PBR: Why did you choose the school you did? 
BAUMLER: I really liked the culture of the program and the pitching Coach Kirk Saarloos.  I thought they fit my needs as a player in the future.

PBR: What other schools were you considering? 
BAUMLER: At the end Iowa, Missouri, Louisville.

PBR: Where did the coaching staff first see you? How did your relationship develop with him? 
BAUMLER: TCU saw me at a PBR event in Tulsa Oklahoma and again at the Futures Games.  I talked to them a number of times after that first event on the phone and took an official visit.

PBR: Do you feel relieved now that the process is over and you can just focus on baseball and not deal with everything that goes into picking a school?  
BAUMLER: Yes I am absolutely relieved!  I was getting to the end and it became very stressful!  I had a lot of schools calling and inquiring and it started to become stressful.

PBR: Was there one deciding factor that put your choice over the top? 
BAUMLER: Yes, the culture of the program and the Coaching staff.

PBR: Who has helped you the most to get to where you are today? 
BAUMLER: My Father helped me a lot and my teammates also drove me to work harder.

PBR: What were your expectations about the recruiting process? Was it easy/difficult?  
BAUMLER: I did not think it was easy but also wasn’t difficult.  I had good options for schools so that made it stressful in the end.  The teams were very good baseball schools.

PBR: What plans does the coaching staff have in store for you in your freshman season?  
BAUMLER: I will be going to TCU as a two way player, pitcher and outfielder.  I feel the Coaching staff is expecting a lot from me as a player and leader coming into their program.  They know I will put the work in to try and make their program better.

PBR: What is your most memorable baseball moment to date?  
BAUMLER: I really don’t have one moment that sticks with me yet, I have high expectations!  I try to make every game more memorable than the last. 

 

PBR: Who is the best player that you have competed against? 
BAUMLER: For pitching in any event it has to be Peyton Williams from Johnston, he is hard to get out.
