Parker Returns to Auburn
Kyle Parker had one of the best days of his life the last time he was in Auburn. On June, 7 Kyle hit a three-run homerun in the first inning to help the Tigers win the regional and advance to the Super Regional. That was Kyles 20th homerun making him the first Division 1 player ever to hit 20 homeruns and throw 20 touchdowns in the same academic year.
While the game was going on Kyle’s dad watched from the stands with a laptop in his lap following the Major League Baseball draft. Kyle was drafted with the No. 26 pick by the Colorado that night.
