Larry Broadway Statement on Tyler Gaffney Returning to Stanford

Pittsburgh Pirates farm director Larry Broadway addressed Tyler Gaffney’s return to football with the following statement:

“We have spoken with Tyler and he has decided to put his professional baseball career on hold in order to complete his undergraduate degree at Stanford and play his senior year with the football team.  He had nothing but positive things to say about the organization and would like to keep open the possibility of returning to the Pirates once he has completed his education and football career.  We respect his decision, which was ultimately a difficult one for him to make, and wish him nothing but success and good health until he returns.”
