Eighteen-year-old Loyola High School graduate
Quinn Brodey is Baseball Central’s Allstar
of Month for June. 

A BCLA regular since he was 10, taking pitching
lessons with TJ Runnells, Brodey has a wealth of
accomplishments both on and off the diamond.

Recently drafted right out of high school in the 37th round of the 2014 First Year Players Draft by the Washington Nationals, Brodey instead opted to accept an athletic scholarship to Stanford University where his first year will include general studies and pitching/outfielding duties for the Cardinal baseball team in NCAA Division 1.

"In three years I will try to get drafted again," Brodey says, adding Baseball Central has been a definite factor in his success. "It's a good place to come and put my time in, letting me hit and work out."

He was on the first team in the All Mission League (2012-14), first team All CIF (2012-13), an 18U team USA trials invitee and a 2013 Brewers area code team participant.

On the school side Brodey recently graduated with honors from Loyola HS with an enviable list of accolades: cum laude society; national merit scholar honorable mention; Fairfield University book award recipient (2013).

Brodey was a three-year member of the Monogram Club, where he played a leadership role, helping to organize and usher school events.

And he even found time for community service, helping out at several homeless shelters as part of the Urban Plunge service immersion program, and volunteering a month at Frank D. Lanterman school with physically and mentally disabled high school aged students for his senior service project.
