Jeremey Hazelbaker is one of three former Ball State players on the brink of the Majors.  He's currentyly at Triple-A in the Boston system.  A starting outfielder for the Pawtucket (RI) Red Sox, Hazelbaker made his first trip to Indiana as a pro last month.  BallStateSports.com's Joel Godett caught up with Hazelbaker at Victory Field prior to a game against the Indianaplois Indians to discuss his rise through the Red Sox system and his time at BSU.

An All-American in 2009, Hazelbaker was a fourth round pick after his junior season.  The outfielder hit over .400 for all but two games as a junior, his first as an outfielder.  Hazelbaker was previously an infielder for the Cards, but really took off after the defensive switch.  He then went on to steal more than 60 bases as a pro rookie at Low-A Greenville in 2010.  The total was the most for a Boston farmhand since 1981.  Check in with Hazelbaker in the video to find out more.
