Minor League Madhouse offers its condolences to the family of Donny Everett. Everett, a highly regarded freshman, drowned yesterday in Normandy Lake, a day before Vanderbilt was to begin their regional against Xavier.
Everett came to Vanderbilt after a highly decorated prep career for Clarksville High School. Regarded as a potential first round pick, Everett was drafted by the Brewers, but opted to go to college instead. In one season for the Commodores, Everett pitched out of the bullpen, finishing with an 0-1 record, a 1.50 ERA and 13 strikeouts. He was scheduled to pitch in the Cape Cod League after the season ended.
Rest in peace, Donny. Anchor Down.
