Peoria, Arizona —— After enjoying a breakout season at the plate in 2017, Seattle Mariners outfield prospect Braden Bishop found himself facing the best pitchers he’d ever seen in his life over the last six weeks at the Arizona Fall League. A challenge, to be sure, but something the speedy outfielder could undoubtedly take on considering what else has been going on in his life over the past few years away from the field.
Now, Bishop will get a shot to win an AFL championship with the Peoria Javelinas as the fall season winds down. Before the end of the year, though, we made a point to catch up with him on camera to discuss in depth some of the swing changes he made that led to his breakout year in 2017, and follow up on some of his ‘4MOM’ foundation outreach work that’s been taking place over the last few weeks.
