With strong sophomore season, Garrett Coe earned UConn baseball scholarship the old-fashioned way

STORRS — Garrett Coe had just spun a career-high four innings of one-hit, scoreless relief, keeping Xavier’s big bats at bay, when, with one out in the seventh inning, UConn baseball coach Jim Penders came out to the mound to replace him.

Penders called for Devin Kirby from the bullpen, but made sure to pat Coe on the back and give him a very special message before he walked off the mound.

“Hey man, you earned a scholarship a long time ago,” Penders told him, “but I want to let you know you’re going to have one moving forward.”
