Garrett Christman defines himself as a “Bulldog.”
“I needed to be a Bulldog when I took the mound,” Christman said.
That is the mentality Christman had before he started the Indiana State Championship game for Noblesville High School in 2014. That mentality propelled the team to it’s first ever State Championship.
Shortly following the game, Christman was selected in the 37th round of the MLB draft in 2014, by his Dad’s former team, the San Francisco Giants.
