UTA baseball’s youngest player holds his own

This time last year, Cade Winquest was pitching against high school hitters in Haslet, Texas, weeks away from graduating.

A year later, he’s the youngest player on the UTA baseball team, and he’s establishing himself as one of the linchpins of the Maverick pitching rotation moving forward.

“It’s a big adjustment,” Winquest said. “Just going from my summer league and high school to the fall was a big adjustment and just facing our own team. You can just tell how much more mature these hitters are.”

But Winquest is holding his own against older competition in his freshman season.
