When Brandon Waddell first reported to the University of Virginia baseball team, he was a fresh-faced 158-pounder. But youthful looks and lack of size be damned, he had the mound demeanor — and change-up — of a seasoned veteran.
So, as a rookie, he toed the rubber on Feb. 15, 2013, inside East Carolina’s Clark-LeClair Stadium. Waddell threw out the first pitch for coach Brian O’Connor’s 10th season at UVa.
