OF/RHP Brandon Wood has committed to Texas A&M. Wood (6-4, 190, R-R) batted leadoff for the Sugarland Clements Rangers and was named First Team All-District in 2008. The Houston Chronicle named him second team All-Area in the outfield. Houston5ABaseball.com named him First Team All-Greater Houston at Designated Hitter.

He is also nephew of former catcher in '89 & '90, John Wood. Remember: WOODIE!! And the Woodometer?

Brandon is a chiseled hard throwing RHP that can swing it. He was approached by TAMU at a camp in January of this year. You will not be disappointed. Possible replacement for Anders.

I dont remember John Wood. Was he Albright and Blake Pyle's backup?

OK I just looked him up. Looks like he was only here in 1990. I believe Albright and Pyle were gone by then.

John was here in '89 & '90. Usually backed up Albright. Pyle was here too of course. He started most of the games behind the plate in '90. Outstanding catcher, better than Albright and Pyle behind the plate, but the bat was what hurt him some. He started '90 in a major slump. He was hitting the ball but just not finding any holes. Once a few started falling, somebody started the Wood-o-meter to track his average. He's from Brenham so I believe it was friends of his from there.

I was a freshman in HS in 89 so that may be part of the reason I dont remember him. I do remember Albright and the rest of the 89 crew though.

Wood was better than Albright behind the plate? Wow! I've heard a lot of Ags claim that Albright is the best catcher to ever wear the maroon & white. I tend to agree with them. Where did Wood play after A&M?

You do not remember Woody for what little (if any) playing time he received in '89 but how the student section reaction to him coming to the plate in '90.

By no means was that to slight E.A. He was a real good catcher. He was a very important part of the '89 team. Definitely had a better stick and called a pretty good game. John was a little better defensive catcher and had a better arm. That is all I was saying. All around E.A.'s career was more impressive at A&M.

John played one year in the Braves organization and that was it. E.A. played several years in the Tigers organization. Don't recall how high he went up though.
