Bruni Excited At Opportunity To Be A Buckeye

ALLIANCE - The PBR Future Games helped Gavin Bruni realize college baseball was in his future. An offer from Ohio State sealed the deal.

The end result was the Alliance freshman committing to play for the Buckeyes.

“On Feb. 4, I took my first visit there and knew then it felt like home,” explained Bruni, who had also made visits to Louisville and Kent State. “I went again this past Sunday (March 25) to watch a game and it really felt right. I felt comfortable with the staff, I liked how they talked and it made me buy into it. The staff was warm to me and my family and it just felt right.”

The Future Games played a big role in Bruni’s exposure.

“It’s always been a dream of mine,” the 6-3 185-pound left-hander said about the next level. “I’ve always wanted to play big-time college baseball in a Power Five conference. It’s been a dream of mine since I started watching it on TV and I looked forward to possibly doing it.

“When I was younger I realized I was more advanced than a lot of kids but I thought they might catch up,” Bruni continued. “I just had to keep working to advance my game and then last year I realized it could take me a long way. The PBR Future Games was a big stepping stone. It opened my eyes I could compete with those guys, that I could do it against anybody.”
