The Long Road Back

UTA Baseball

Adam Boydston is no stranger to achievements. The  junior lefty for the University of Texas-Arlington baseball program is use to it. Five games into the 2010 season, he and teammate Jason Mitchell had their game hats sent to the Collegiate Baseball Hall of Fame for a NCAA record-setting combined 26 strikeout performance in a 1-0 win against Missouri State.

That would pretty much end his season as a week later he found out he needed Tommy John surgery. This was at a time when Adam had climbed to number four on UTA’s all-time saves list.

Through hard work and dedication, Adam was back on the mound in February closing for the Mavericks. He has a team leading seven saves. and with seven more he will become UTA’s all-time saves leader.

Adam is also a success off the field. He has been able to maintain a 4.0 grade point average along with being  nominated for Rhodes Scholar.

For Adam, that scar on his left arm will always be a reminder. But thanks to hard work, dedication and pride, he was able to come back and take to the hill in his biggest achievement yet.
