Baseline Banter: Drew Ashley joins podcast after strong weekend against Maryland


It took sophomore infielder Drew Ashley 19 games to hit his first home run as a Hoosier. But when the ball left his bat in the 12th inning against Illinois on April 28, 2018, it gave IU a walk-off win and showed fans what Ashley was capable of.

He would be named to the All-Big Ten Freshman team when the season ended and has been a key piece in the lineup for IU under new Head Coach Jeff Mercer this season.

Ashley joined Indiana Daily Student baseball beat reporters Stefan Krajisnik and Jared Rigdon to discuss this season and his career with the Hoosiers.
