Admirals lose #1 Pitcher Xander Taylor for 2012 Campaign.

After nagging shoulder pain, Xander received the word this week that surgery is indeed required and he will be out the entire season. Xander as a junior stepped up his game last year when Vandy Freshman Phillip Pfeifer saw limited action due to his injuries. Little did we know Xanders No Hitter in the 2011 State Championship Game would be his last in an Admiral Uniform. In addition to his arm, Xander was slotted to hit in the 4 Spot this year.

Please keep Xander in your prayers before, during and after surgery. With successful surgery and after rehab, Xander will have the opportunity to pitch again at the next level. In the meantime, he will be in the dugout keeping his teammates up the tasks at hand!!
