Head Coach Paul Mainieri on Hayden Travinski:
“There is no one in our class with more power than Hayden Travinski. Hayden is a big, strong catcher with big-time power in his bat. Essentially, he is another Saul Garza – albeit a couple of years younger. He has a plus arm behind the plate, although he is still developing his catching skills. It takes time to learn the nuances of catching, and Hayden is a hard worker that will keep getting better. He will have to learn to make more consistent contact at the plate, but when he does make contact, usually something special happens. He is also a tremendous competitor and will not back down from challenges. Hayden could have been drafted fairly early and signed for a significant bonus. However, because of his desire to attend LSU, he went undrafted.”
