Best Of D1: Golden Spikes Spotlight On Freshman Brendan McKay (2015)

Editor’s Note: The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in the cancellation of the 2020 college baseball season, so we’re digging through our archives and re-posting some of the best work of D1Baseball’s first five years, highlighting some of college baseball’s biggest stars and most compelling storylines. Today, we present Aaron Fitt’s 2015 profile of then-freshman Brendan McKay, whose greatness was already apparent just a few months into his collegiate career. He would go on to become one of the best two-way players of all time, but it’s interesting to look back at how he was perceived as a freshman at Louisville.
