Former UL Star Blake Trahan Makes Great Diving Play – VIDEO
A former Louisiana Ragin' Cajun baseball standout continues to live up to his reputation of being an outstanding defensive player.
Last year, infielder Blake Trahan, who played for the Cajuns for three seasons, from 2013-2015, was named the Rawlings Gold Glove Award winner for the shortstop position in the International League.
On Sunday, Trahan, who currently plays for the Louisville Bats, the AAA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, showed why he's such an outstanding defensive player, with a diving stop, followed by a throw out of Indianapolis' Ke'Bryan Hayes in the 6th inning of the Bats' 8-2 win.
A native of Kinder, La., Trahan, the 2015 Sun Belt Conference Player of the Year, appeared in 11 games for the Reds last September, collecting three hits in 14 at-bats, while scoring twice.
A 3rd-round draft choice of the Reds in 2015, Trahan has hit a .227, to go along with 5 home runs, and 29 runs batted in at the minor league level this season.
Louisville will end their regular season schedule today, with another game against Indianapolis.
