Their season was cut short but they did get roughly about half of the games in for the 2019-20 college baseball season. Former Mulvane baseball players Mason LeClair, Ethan Booe, and Axton Travis are no longer hitting the field this year due to the Coronavirus.
Mason's college baseball career ended just like that when the announcement came as he is a senior at Emporia State University. They finished the season 13-7 and Mason logged 8 appearances on the mound. He finished the season with 14 innings pitched, 11 strikeouts, and a 4.50 ERA. Mason technically retains this year's eligibility from the NCAA but has no plans to return next year. LeClair graduated this past December and is engaged to former Mulvane dancer Neleigh Higgins and plans to wed early next year.
Ethan is a sophomore at Fort Hays State University and they finished this season 11-13 and Ethan logged 2 appearances on the mound. He finished the season with 6.1 innings pitched, 3 strikeouts, and 9.95 ERA. Ethan is planning on going to Colorado this summer and playing for the Fort Collins Foxes.
Axton graduated from Mulvane in 2017 but joined the Tabor baseball team this year as a freshman. He did not log any time on the mound this year but keeps this year of eligibility and has 4 more years of eligibility at Tabor. He is looking to play summer ball this year, and he is returning to Tabor in the Fall.
