Former Ram Cody Eppley was on campus yesterday. Mike Voyack managed to catch up with him at the Black and Gold World Series at the Diamond. Eppley just finished his first full season in the Majors with the New York Yankees. The sidearmer made 59 appearances and crafted a 3.33 ERA in 46.0 innings for the Bronx Bombers. Not bad for a 43rd round draft pick.

Eric Chavez used to be an all-star third baseman. He also used to not render his pitchers unconscious with errant throws, but times do change. Here’s Chavez going upside the head of former VCU hurler and teammate Cody Eppley. Cody was fine. FYI, Eppley has carved out a nice role for himself in the Yankees’ bullpen. He’s appeared in 38 games this year and has a 3.19 ERA. The Yankees are also leading the American League East, so you could be seeing more of Eppley in October this year.
