Former UF baseball player Harrison Bader is hitting it big in the ALDS

Former UF baseball player Harrison Bader or “Tots,” is making a statement in the 2022 ALDS for the Yankees. The recently traded Cardinal is now playing for the Yankees and has been on fire for the last four games. Bader hit his third home run in the ALDS including a two-run home run on the Oct. 16 game against the Guardians. This game tied the Yankees in the series, putting Game 5 on Monday evening.

Bader for the Yankees

This is Baders first season with the New York City Yankees. He spent most of the regular season out with a foot injury, only appearing in 14 games.

With his three homers, he ties for second with Bernie Williams and Paul O’Neill for most home runs in best-of-five postseason series for the Yankees. Giancarlo Stanton leads by one in 2020. Williams had his three in 1996 and O’Neill’s were in 1995.

Bader for the Cardinals

Bader was drafted by the Cardinals in 2015 when he was a junior at the University of Florida. In 2015, he was drafted in Round 3, the 100th overall pick. Bader made his MLB debut with St. Louis in 2017 and played with them up until Aug. 2022, when he was traded to play for the Yankees. His career with the Cardinals included a Gold Glove Award in 2021, 177 runs and 52 home runs.

Time as a Gator

The current Yankee star committed to the University of Florida where he played there from 2013-2015. Bader had over 20 home runs, over 100 RBI and started in every game he played except for two. With the combination of awards and award nominations, he had over 12 before leaving Florida. These awards included the SEC player of the week, making All-American Teams and being a Dick Howser Award Semifinalist in 2015.
