Chandler Mcclaren Off To Vol State
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Sunday, August 9, 2009
Outfielder Chandler McLaren will head to Tennessee next week to begin his college career at Volunteer State College (NJCAA D1). The college is located 30 miles north east of Nashville in Gallatin, TN. The Pioneers play in one of the most competitive conferences in all of Division 1 baseball. They are consistently a powerhouse, and contend for the conference championship every season. Chandler was drafted by the Brewers in the 29th round this past June.

He has passed on professional baseball for now to further hone his tremendous baseball skills in college. Chandler is an excellent athlete and considered a projectable five tool player by many pro scouts. The numbers back that up! He hit .468 versus college competition on the Terriers March Break trip to Florida, followed that up with staggering numbers this past summer, hitting .538 (2HRs) at the Buckeye Elite, and .667 at the World Series ( 9 singles,5 doubles, 13 RBIs). Chandler is also blessed with above average arm strength, and has a very reliable glove. He follows in the footsteps of Terriers alumni, Josh Garton, who also attended Vol St. In the 2009 MLB draft he was selected in the 10th round and has since signed a pro contract with the Reds. The Terriers have a very big hole to fill in right field next year, but wish Chandler the best of luck with this big step in his baseball career. Congratulations to Chandler and his family.
