There are few better feelings for an aspiring sportsperson than finally turning professional. And Brady Singer – signed by the Kansas City Royals in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft – can certainly attest to that. However, the pitcher surprised everyone when he handed over an envelope to his parents on Christmas Day later that year.

Singer was born in August 1996 and grew up in Leesburg, Florida, alongside his parents Brett and Jacquelyn. The family then moved to nearby Eustis, where Singer enrolled at Eustis High School. And the aspiring pitcher subsequently joined the school’s baseball team and excelled under the guidance of coach David Lee.

So, having impressed during his high school displays, Singer then enrolled at the University of Florida in 2016. And the right-hander was subsequently selected for the Florida Gators, making over 20 appearances in his freshman year. What’s more, in that time, he made quite an impression.
