"Drew’s biggest supporters come from his close-knit
well-grounded family. Most baseball fans are probably familiar with
- Mark Patrick, Drew's dad, who hosted ‘Baseball in the Morning’ on XM 175 Home Plate (now MLB Network Radio) for four years up until the XM/Sirius merger. Most of the parental sports attention gets focused on him due to his ties.
He was also instrumental in Drew’s baseball upbringing, teaching Drew to
switch hit at the age of four, sending him to pitching lessons after he
expressed an interest and being able to spot errors and correct them in Drew’s delivery. Mark’s brother and wife, Drew’s aunt and uncle, have followed him to games across the country, even sporting this homemade sign during the College World Series in Omaha.
