Wilson, N.C. – The Wilson Tobs are happy to welcome two Nebraska Cornhuskers to Historic Fleming Stadium this summer: Cam Wynne and Braxton Bragg.

Cam Wynne, a 6-foot-6 redshirt junior right-handed pitcher from Lincoln, Nebraska, started his colligate career at the JUCO powerhouse Johnston County Community College in Overland Park, Kansas. He primarily worked out of the bullpen for the Cavaliers in 2018 and 2019. The hard throwing right hander amassed 29 appearances that included 1 start over two seasons at JCCC. In those 27 innings, Wynn fanned 38 while only giving up 21 hits. In the shortened 2020 season, Wynne saw limited time on the mound making 2 appearances for Texas A&M. He made quick work of his opponents striking out 3 in 1.1 innings and allowing no hits. Wynn moved back home to Nebraska for the 2021 season. Like the rest of his team, he is off to a hot start. The Lincoln native is second on the Cornhuskers staff in appearances with 10 sporting a 0.96 ERA and an opponent batting average of just .133. In 9 innings this spring he as only given up 4 hits and struck out 12. Wynne’s big frame and quick arm allows him to possess a fastball in the mid to upper 90s and a complimenting hard sharp slide. The Wilson Tobs are very excited to see the big man take the ball in leveraged situations and secure many victories this summer!

Wynne’s Huskers teammate, Braxon Bragg, is a redshirt freshman right-handed pitcher from Liberty, Missouri. The tall 6-foot-2 righty made an immediate impact for the Huskers as freshman making his first start against the University of Northern Colorado throwing 3 scoreless innings. His freshman campaign ended early due to Covid but still managed to appear in 3 more games in relief. This spring Bragg has made 8 appearances thus far for Nebraska who sits atop the BIG10. His longest outing coming against Purdue where he went 4 innings of relief striking out 6 and walking none while allowing just 2 hits. In 13.1 innings pitched so far this season Braxton has commanded the strike zone very well only walking 3 while striking out 16 making him a good weapon out of the pen for Nebraska in long and short relief roles.

This summer in Wilson the Tobs look forward to seeing Bragg push forward to a starting role and continue his dominance of the strike zone pitching to contact getting the big strike out when needed. Having a pitcher with the ability to work short and long relief stints as well as start makes things a little easier for skipper Harry Markotay. The Tobs are very pleased with the additions of these high caliber arms with 2021 Tobs catcher Griffin Everitt behind the plate.
