The London Badgers are proud to announce the signing of Braydon Verschueren to the Kellogg Community College (KCC) Bruins for the 2019/2020 season!  The KCC Bruins are based in Battle Creek, Michigan, and have a long history of baseball excellence including conference championships, state championships, and NJCAA D2 World Series finishes.

To celebrate Braydon’s accomplishment, we interviewed him to get his thoughts on his future with the Bruins and reflect on his experience with the London Badgers

Q:  So Braydon, why did you sign with the KCC Bruins? 
A:  I signed with Kellogg primarily because they are a well-known school in the baseball community and a lot of KCC players further their baseball careers by transferring to 4-year schools.  They offer an excellent Criminal Justice Program (my major) which was also an important consideration for me.  Finally, they are looking for me to be a two-way player – both a LH Pitcher and 1st Base – and I expect to have the opportunity to play a lot of ball as a freshman.  

Q:  How many years did you play with the Badgers, and what was your biggest highlight? 
A:  The 2019 season will be my 5th season with the London Badgers.  My biggest highlight was being a part of the U18 National Championship Team 2 years in a row!   

Q:  How has the London Badgers program helped prepare you for college baseball?
A:  The London Badgers Association has taught me that dedication, hard work and advanced skills equals success.  Without the Badgers I would be at a very different place in my baseball career!   

Q:  Who was the person who guided you the most throughout your minor baseball career? 
A:  Mike Lumley has been a huge part of making me the baseball player I am today by teaching me to believe in myself, teaching me to fine tune my mechanics, and enabling me to understand the mental side of baseball.   

Q:  Who was your first baseball coach? How did he inspire you to be where you are today? 
A:  My first baseball coach was Derek Partlo when I was 6 years old playing for the Tillsonburg Otters.  He recognized my skills/talent and guided me to seek greater competition and more of a challenge with the London Badgers.   

Q:  Any words of advice for our younger Badger athletes? 
A:  Words of advice - I just want them to realize that with hard work, dedication and loads of team work anything is achievable. Never give up on your baseball dreams.  Set goals and reach for the stars.
