Channel 8: Former K-State baseball player brings baseball year-round to Manhattan


Texas native Drew Biery came to Kansas in 2005 to play baseball for the Wildcats. During his first stint in Manhattan, he noticed that kids didn’t have a place to practice baseball year round.

After time in the San Francisco Giants organization, an injury cut his pro career short, but knew that he wanted to keep baseball in his life. This past summer, the timing was right and he opened The Barn Baseball Academy, which now serves 11 different teams in the Manhattan area.
