Drake Browne's Organizations

  • Furman University Varsity Baseball

    RHP
    • August 2009 to May 2013

    Member of the varsity baseball team all four years at Furman. Recruited as a 1B/C but transitioned to the mound my second year as a Paladin. Made 32 appearances out of the bullpen as a Sophomore before needing Tommy John Surgery that caused me to miss the entire 2012 season. Came back to throw in 33 games as a senior, including wins over Georgia and South Carolina. Part of a strong recruiting class that improved our program every season. Our team won 19 games our freshman year, and fell just one short of the school record of 34 in our senior season.
