In a roster that includes many picks from the top ten rounds of the Major League Baseball Draft, Jeremiah Bayer ’05 may seem out of place. Drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 30th round in 2009, Mr. Bayer is the second-oldest pitcher on the minor league Salem (VA) Red Sox. Yet he is still making an impact on the team, according to an article on MassLive.com. Pitching out of the bullpen, Mr. Bayer’s versatility has impressed the Red Sox front-office staff. Last year, Ben Proctor, assistant director of player development for the Boston Red Sox, commented: “Jeremiah has had a very good year. His numbers match up with anyone in the organization, especially with getting groundballs.” Salem Manager Bruce Crabbe echoed the praise. “He has been very versatile for us. He has filled in gaps for us. The guy throws strikes. His groundball ratio is second to none.” “The season has gone well,” Mr. Bayer said. “I was happy to come here (with Salem) and start the season. I have been lucky to stay healthy and throw a lot of innings.” Mr. Bayer was drafted by the Red Sox following a record-breaking season at Trinity College. He set the school record for wins in a season, with 12, led Division III in innings and ERA—0.85 ERA in 95 1/3 innings—and was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Pitcher of the Year.

2011 Sean Barnett writes, “I am currently attending New York University. I wanted to drop a line about two recent accomplishments—while still attending school at NYU, I will be working two days a week at GQ Magazine as a fashion editorial intern. The second achievement is that I was recently in an independent comedy short that was submitted to a pilot competition for Comedy Central in late January.”
