Lexington, Kentucky (WQOW) -- McDonell Central high school product Kyle Cody could have signed a pro baseball contract with the Philadelphia Phillies, but instead signed a Division I letter of intent with the University of Kentucky.
The Wildcats are giving Cody plenty of opportunities to pitch as a freshman. He's appeared in nine games, with four starts. Cody has a 2-1 record and a 5.25 earned run average, along with 21 strikeouts in 24 innings.
"I've learned so much," says Cody, "I was just thinking about this the other day, when I came down here and threw my first bullpen, I felt like I didn't know anything. And now I feel like I know a lot. I feel like I've learned a lot working with Coach [Gary] Henderson, he's taught me a lot and I still have a lot to learn. So I feel like I'm growing through the process."
Kyle Cody gets the start Tuesday as Kentucky hosts Austin Peay in a non-conference game.
