Former Chipola Stars In MLB Postseason


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Four former Chipola College baseball stars are starring in the Major League Baseball’s postseason which began Oct. 3: Patrick Corbin—Washington Nationals, Russell Martin: Los Angeles Dodgers, Tyler Flowers—Atlanta Braves and Adam Duvall—Atlanta Braves. The Braves dropped game one of the NLDS, 7-6. The Dodgers won game one, 6-0. Chipola head coach Jeff Johnson is happy to see his former players go on to play at such a high level. "I'm proud of what these guys have accomplished both on and off the field since leaving Chipola," said Jeff Johnson. "Getting to the playoffs and having a chance to win the World Series is the ultimate prize for every player. Hopefully we will have a fomer Chipola Indian wearing a nice, big ring when the World Series concludes," he continued. Tyler Flowers, starting catcher for the Atlanta Braves, and Adam Duvall, Braves outfielder, are in the American League Division series. Duvall played at Chipola in 2008. Flowers played at Chipola in 2005 and 2006. Corbin, a left-handed pitcher, got the start in game one for the Nationals, but the Dodgers took a 6-0 win. Corbin, who played at Chipola in 2009, signed a six-year, $140 million deal with the Nationals in the off-season. Russell Martin was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers in January, 2019. The Dodgers originally selected him in the 17th round of the 2002 draft. His former team, the Blue Jays are covering over 80 percent of the $20 million owed to Martin. He’s a four-time All-Star and Silver Slugger. The MLB playoffs started Oct. 3. The playoff schedule is available at:
